City lifts Shark Watch at North Shore beaches

HALEIWA (HawaiiNewsNow) – Two lifeguards with the city's Ocean Safety and Lifeguard Services Division scoured the ocean off Oahu's North shore from a helicopter for about an hour late Wednesday morning looking for sharks. They did not see any, and the Shark Watch put into effect Tuesday after a Waialua man was attacked near a surf spot called "Leftovers" was lifted shortly after noon.

Josh Holley, the 28 year old man who suffered a bite on his left foot, was examined by a specialist at the Queen's Medical Center Wednesday and is scheduled to have two tendons repaired during surgery Thursday.

"Recovery? We are looking maybe at about a month, a month's worth of recovery. It's going to be a long time out of the water, but definitely when I get healed up and get the doctor's okay I'm going to definitely jump in the water," Holley told Hawaii News Now.
