March 17, 2024

On Sunday, March 17th, 2024, Honolulu Ocean Safety rescued a father and his teenaged son who were caught in the surf at Ke Iki Beach. The 911 call came in just before 2:30 p.m. Lifeguards swam and paddled out to them with rescue tubes and brought the two beyond the crashing surf and kept them calm and afloat. Lifeguards via jet ski responded quickly and put the two visitors onto the ski and took them to shore safely.  Witnesses say the son got into trouble and the father went in to rescue him. The two did not require the attention of the Honolulu Emergency Medical Services. The surf was said to be 6-8 feet. Honolulu Ocean Safety appreciates the 911 callers who called immediately.
