OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) – A doctor who was bitten by a shark while vacationing in Hawaii is recovering at home in Kansas.

KCTV reports 58-year-old Ken Grasing of Overland Park suffered deep cuts to his left forearm and a gash on his left thigh when he was bitten by a tiger shark while snorkeling with his sons in Hawaii last week.

Grasing, who works at the Kansas City Veterans Administration Medical Center, says he was standing in about 4 feet of water when the 10- to 12-foot tiger shark suddenly bit his left forearm. He hit the shark and a stranger helped him out of the water.

Grasing had surgery in Hawaii to repair tendons, a nerve and a muscle. He says he’s been told he will make a full recovery.
