A 50-year-old woman who went swimming Saturday night in Waikiki, was swept out to sea and had to spend the night in the ocean until she was rescued the following morning mile off Keehi Lagoon.

The woman told responders she went swimming between 9 and 10 p.m. Saturday, in the Waikiki area and was taken out to sea by the current.

At 11:20 a.m., Sunday, the Navatek I, a tour boat, spotted the woman in distress near Keehi Lagoon.
