So many insane shark attacks!!
A 16-year-old, Jimmy Ulualoha "Ulu-boy" Nateahi, was surfing off the east coast of Hawaii's Big Island when the worst thing ever happened…
He was bitten in the legs by an 8-foot shark!!
The boy was left with 30 deep lacerations in his legs!
After the attack, his friends pulled him up onto his board and paddled him to shore.
He was then flown by helicopter to Hilo Medical Center where he's currently in stable condition.
His mother said:
"He'll be able to surf again after he heals. He's going to recover and he's going to go back. … Absolutely, it's been his passion his whole life. He's been surfing since he was four."
So glad he's okay!
It's just so crazy that there was another shark attack, right after the German tourist girl lost her arm!
Maybe people in Hawaii should stay out of the water for a while… we're sure there are some very nice pools in Hawaii.
