A fisherman in a kayak has died after being attacked by a shark off the Hawaiian coast, officials say.

Patrick Briney, 57, of Stevenson, Washington, was paddling between the islands of Maui and Molokini when he was bitten by an unknown type of shark.

Briney was taken by a friend to a nearby tour boat but died before reaching the Maui mainland.
