Hawaii Island firefighters rescued a 59-year-old man after he nearly drowned today at a beach in North Kohala.

The man was unfamiliar with the ocean currents at Pololu Valley Beach, and friends and bystanders had to pull him out of the water about 1:15 p.m., firefighters said.

Firefighters treated him at the scene and a fire helicopter flew the man in serious condition to North Hawaii Community Hospital.
