A 34-year-old Oahu woman was apparently bitten by a shark this morning off Haleiwa.
The incident happened at around 9:20 a.m.
Emergency Services Department spokeswoman Shayne Enright said the woman first told a paramedic she was injured by a spear, then later told her it was a shark bite that she got three miles off Haleiwa Boat Harbor.
Enright said the paramedic confirmed that the injury appeared to be a shark bite.
The woman was transported to an emergency room in serious condition.
