A shark inflicted a massive wound to the upper right leg of a 57 year-old Kahana Man around 7 am on Wednesday 7th April as he was paddling his surfboard to catch waves at the popular surf spot known as "S-turns".

Despite efforts of fellow surfers and paramedics to save him, Willy McInnis died at the scene, becoming the first confirmed shark attack fatality in Hawaii in nearly 12 years.
