A teenage surfer who underwent several surgeries after being bitten across both legs by a shark in Big Island waters has been released from the hospital, according to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.

Jimmy "Ulu Boy" Napeahi, 16, spent about ten days in the Hilo Medical Center before being released last Thursday.

Experts think that a ten foot tiger shark was to blame for the attack.
