Shark attack, 1914.

GRUESOME DEATH BY A SHARK

This Sunday, Mar. 1—A Japanese and his son went to pick opihi [kui opihi] on the sea cliffs of Honomu, and while they were enjoying the opihi picking, the boy slipped and fell into the ocean, and before the father could do something for the child, the boy was taken by a huge black shark.

The body of that Japanese boy was held upwards in view of the father, and when it went back down into the ocean, the waist was severed, and with the second bite of that man-eating shark, the body of that unfortunate boy was completely gone. The actions done by that niuhi to that pitiful child is truly frightening.
