Lots of people floating around the waters at waikiki. Maybe new lifeguard methods are in order for spotting swimmers in trouble. Waikiki has too many tourist who have little idea of what it is like to swim in the ocean. The waves, pull of rip tides. The ocean is never calm, a lot different than a lake. Seems like a drowning every other week.
