Man possibly bitten by shark

PAIA (HawaiiNewsNow) - On Maui a man is counting his blessings after reportedly being bitten by what sounds like a shark or barracuda.

Ocean safety crews responded to a beach in Paia at about 2:00 Sunday afternoon, after the man's friend told rescuers his friend was bitten on his right foot.

He was rushed to Maui Memorial Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Lifeguards conducted a search of nearby waters and came up empty.
