Hawaii tourist loses leg in shark attack
A 28-year-old visitor from France has lost part of a leg in an attack by a shark at Kekaha Beach Park in Hawaii.

Mac Pigott told KHON-TV that he visited the victim on Saturday in a hospital on the island of Kauai following the attack at Davidson's Beach.

Pigott did not identify the French man by name, but he provided KHON-TV with a picture of him smiling from his hospital bed.

Pigott said doctors amputated one of the man's legs just below the knee.

He said the victim is setting goals so he can compete one day in the Paralympic Games.

Officials closed the beach on Friday after the attack.

KHON-TV says it reopened on Saturday, according to AP.
