LIHUE >> Authorities say they’ll continue searching for a Singaporean man swept off the rocks on Kauai’s north shore.
The Kauai Fire Department says the search will continue Wednesday after there was no sign of 62-year-old Phua Chuan Chin.
The fire department says Chin and three other people were walking along a rocky shoreline when a large wave hit.
Chin and another male were swept into the water. The other man swam to the rocks and was treated for minor injuries at a hospital.
The Coast Guard is searching with a helicopter and a life boat. Firefighters and lifeguards are using jet skis.
The search is focused on Kalihiwai Bay.
The fire department says Monday’s incident occurred in a remote location when a high surf advisory was in effect.
