A WOMAN has had a lucky escape after being bitten by a tiger shark in Hawaii last week.
McKenzie Clark was paddling on her surfboard off Big Island’s Keawaeli Bay when the shark clamped on to her hand.
Her friend Brian Wargo was quick to her rescue, grabbing the shark’s dorsal fin with both hands and punching it until it let her go.
