Grounded Boat Could Be A Shark Magnet!

Six fishermen had to be rescued Friday after their boat lost power and hit the rocks near Onomea Bay, Hawaii. And while the men made it out alive, there was a new threat. The Department of Land and Natural Resources announced the grounded vessel could be a magnet for sharks! There's about 4,000 pounds of fish on the boat, not to mention 700 gallons of diesel fuel. They are warning surfers and fishermen to stay away from the area until the boat can be removed.
