Ocean kayakers call for help off Maui

Two men got into trouble while paddling one-man kayaks off Kanaha Beach Park on Maui Saturday, a Maui Fire Department spokesman said.

Fire rescue crews and the Maui Fire Department helicopter responded at about 1:38 p.m. after the men texted a friend that they were in trouble. 

The men abandoned their kayaks and swam to shore. When firefighters arrived they found the two men on the beach. One was injured and taken to the hospital. The age of the men and the type and extent of the injury weren’t immediately available.

Fire rescue crews retrieved the canoes.
