Kiholo Bay park and beach, where a man was attacked by a shark Wednesday, reopened at 1:30 p.m. today after the Hawaii County Fire Department saw no shark sightings during a flyover. 

Firefighters conducted the flyover at 1 p.m.  from Kiholo Bay to Spencer Beach Park, according to Deborah Ward, spokeswoman of the Department of Land and Natural Resources.  

The park closed Wednesday after a 43-year-old surfer was attacked by a shark on the north end of Kiholo Bay at about 5 p.m. The victim was bitten on the right forearm by what was believed to be a 15-foot tiger shark.

The surfer was transported to North Hawaii Community Hospital for treatment. His condition is not known.
