Life is all about being in the right place at the right moment. However, the 60-year-old man probably didn’t feel the same on early Sunday afternoon. On a sunny day, the man was swimming 200 yards off the Hawaii island’s shore, enjoying his time, when all of a sudden he got attacked by a shark. The victim was chased and bitten by the shark on his left hand and the back of his left leg.

As reported by Star Advertiser, the Hawaii County Fire Department officials revealed that the crew on the catamaran helped the man with first-hand treatment as they helped him to stop his bleeding. However, that wasn’t just enough.
