In Hawaii a 15 year old girl was attacked by a shark yesterday afternoon.

Maui police Sgt. Natalie Ching said a shark's teeth marks were visible on her right calf.

The parents of the girl declined to release information about her medical condition, after she was taken to hospital.

The Star Bulletin reports it's the second time in less than a week that a person has been bitten by a shark.
