Paddleboarder Bitten off the Big Island

This story has been making the rounds this weekend from the Big Island of Hawaii….the beach where it happened has been reopened following the standard closure in the wake of the incident.  A 25-year old and his father were paddling around 9:30 am when the shark bumped his board and he fell into the water.  The paddler is in critical condition at a local hospital.
