What the heck is "Mauui"? In Hawaiian, could mean, "Always good looking." Maybe one fire dept from some other place wen come over help out. If not, how you explain dakine confusion? Not trying to be funny in sad situation. Only amazed by that Mau Ui.

Seems like the reporter was confused because it happened in the Wailuku River. The reporter probably thought this was on the island of Maui and not Hawaii island.
