A 45-foot sailboat ran aground near off shore of the Old Kona Airport overnight.

Hawaii County firefighters launced a rescue boat from Kailua pier after receiving a report of a boat taking on water about 100 to 200 feet offshore just before midnight.

Two people on board, a man and a woman, swam to shore after the boat hit the reef.

A medical unit also responded to the scene, but the sailors were uninjured, according to a Fire Department report.

The Coast Guard was notified of the incident.
