Lifeguards rescue two scuba divers off Makapuu


City lifeguards rescued two scuba divers off Makapuu Thursday morning after they said they needed help, a news release said.

An off-duty firefighter on the Makapuu hiking trail spotted the divers in distress and calling for help. The firefighter called 911 and directed lifeguards to the divers.

Ocean Safety launched watercraft about 11:30 a.m. and rescued the divers off the point at Makapuu, about 1,000 yards offshore.

The men, both 24 years old and Hawaii residents, are experienced divers but told lifeguards they were suffering from exhaustion, the release said. They did not need medical attention.
