MAUI, Hawaii — A woman is recovering after she was attacked by a shark in Maui, Hawaii.

“It happened so fast. I didn’t see him coming. I didn’t see it going,” snorkeler Evonne Cashman said about last week’s shark attack. “The doctor in the ER says according to the bites and where they are it probably was about a 25-foot shark.”

Cashman, a retired school teacher who was on vacation in Maui, said she was about 30 feet from shore and snorkeling in about 10 feet of water when the shark hit her. She said the shark let her go right away and she was able to run to the beach for help.

The State Department of Land and Natural Resources has not yet determined the size nor type of shark involved.
