A 65-year-old California man has died after he was attacked by a shark while swimming in Maui on Saturday.

The man, who was in Hawaii on vacation with his wife, had been swimming about 60 yards from shore near the Kaanapali Shores resort.

A witness saw the man, whose name has not been released, in distress in the water.

They called 911 and the man was found unresponsive in the water. He was brought to shore on a jet ski and given CPR.

‘They pulled the man up. He looked unconscious when they transferred him to the other gurney,’ witness Allison Keller told Hawaii News Now.

‘And we could see that they were trying to do CPR on him.’

Keller said the man suffered horrific injuries from the attack.

‘As we got closer, I saw some blood on his stomach and then I got looking a little bit more and his wrist, it looked like the skin on his wrist was just torn off,’ she said.

‘And then I got looking closer and his entire left leg from his knee down was just missing. There was no blood or anything.’

The man could not be revived and succumbed to his injuries.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.
