Hawaii’s WAFB is reporting that the Maui’s Kahana Beach is back open to the public. The beach was the site of a shark attack on Tuesday morning that left California teen Sage St. Clair with a non-life-threatening injury to her calf. St. Clair was treated on-site by fire personnel and driven to the hospital by her family.
St. Clair was sitting in shallow water near the shore when the bite occurred. While the species has not been identified, officials have stated that the animal involved was likely a small reef shark.
