A man been bitten by a tiger shark off the northern tip of the Big Island in Hawaii on Sunday.
John Braxton was spearfishing off Upolu Pointin when he was bitten on the left upper leg by a 13ft tiger shark.
The 27-year-old was able to swim to shore and a friend called 911.
He was then airlifted to North Hawaii for surgery.
Apparently the water has been murky after recent rain.
