A California man died Saturday in Hawaii’s first fatal shark attack since 2015, prompting officials to post shark warning signs.
The 65-year-old was swimming about 60 yards from the shore of Ka’anapali Beach Park on Maui when a shark attacked, authorities said. Multiple Sacramento television stations reported Sunday night that the man who died was Thomas Smiley, a longtime local optometrist.
Witness Allison Keller told Hawaii News Now that rescuers pulled an unconscious man ashore, then performed CPR.
