A 16-year-old surfer sustained leg injuries after the second shark attack in less than a week in Hawaii.
It strains credulity that the Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources only closed certain beaches after there was a second attack in less than one week. One could argue they should have been more vigilant and kept in daily contact with the US Coast Guard who no doubt would have been in communication with boaters who might have seen sharks in the water (if not on their own). The article failed to elaborate on the victim of this attack or the others, and the author did not interview anyone to add to the relevance of the story.
