Two jet ski riders were taken to a trauma center after crashing Sunday afternoon in Keehi Lagoon, an Emergency Medical Services supervisor said.
A 16-year-old girl was transported in critical condition after the jet ski she was riding was struck from behind by a jet ski ridden by a 20-year-old man, according to the girl's mother. The man was transported to a hospital in serious condition.
Honolulu Fire Department Capt. Gary Lum said the rental company that operated the jet skis brought the injured riders back to the boat ramp, where they were met with emergency medical personnel.
