Park to reopen following shark attack

The Department of Land and Natural Resources expected to reopen Kekaha Kai State Park (Kua Bay and Mahaiula sections) by 11 a.m. today after a Hawaii County Fire Department helicopter flyover this morning did not sight any sharks in waters off the park.

The park remained closed Wednesday when a morning flyover saw a number of reef sharks in offshore waters. The park is located 2.6 miles north of Keahole airport in Kailua-Kona.

A 28-year-old man suffered injuries to his leg in an attack Tuesday afternoon. See today’s Tribune-Herald for more on this story.
