The French visitor who survived a shark attack off Kauai is recovering at a hospital.
The 28-year-old man from France lost part of his leg, but Mac Pigott said he’s in remarkably good spirits.
Pigott, who saw the attack, shared a photo of the victim who’s now recovering at Wilcox Hospital.
The man was surfing at Davidson’s roughly 100 yards offshore of Kekaha Beach Friday morning when officials said a tiger shark bit him. Bystanders say the shark was about 12-feet long.
Doctors had to amputate his leg just below the knee. Pigott said he is extremely positive and already setting goals to compete one day in the Paralympics.
Lifeguards removed shark signs on Saturday and the beach was reopened.
