"You see a shark typically grab something and then wrench to get a chunk out and it looks like that's what he was doing," Van Horn said. "There was kind of a spot, a muddy spot that was kind of oily, it looked like. there was a sheen on the water. and they were kind of circling that and kind of attacking it."

He said he notified authorities and Waterfront Operations from Marine Corps Base Hawaii immediately sent out a boat to warn everyone.
