Maui beach closed after shark bites swimmer

KIHEI, MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) - There has been another shark attack in the waters off Maui.

Ocean Safety on the Valley Isle has confirmed that a female was bitten by a shark near Keawekapu Beach.

Officals have closed the beach from Kihei boat harbor to the Four Seasons.

This is the seventh shark attack on Maui this year – and the third since late October. Back in August, a German tourist was killed following an attack in the waters of south Maui.
