UPDATE: Shark Victim Gets to Keep His Leg

Todd Murashige, the Kane’ohe man who was attacked by a shark off the Crouching Lion restaurant Tuesday afternoon is on the mend and “thinks he’s going to be able to keep his leg.”
Aren Souza, who came to the aid of the victim, spoke with the man by phone yesterday and gave an update on his condition.

“There doesn’t seem to be any nerve damage,” Souza said. “They’re going to check his wounds in a couple of days.”

The victim was about three-quarters of a mile offshore in the same area as Souza when he was attacked. Todd and Souza, 26, paddled their boards in and Souza was able to wrap the wound with a towel, hail a passing truck and call 911. The attack was over in seconds. The shark struck, the victim yelled and was pulled under water.

Firefighters at the scene had credited Souza with saving Todd’s life, but Souza said Todd was the calm one, telling Souza what he had to do.
