Man hurt by wave at Makena Beach
Maui firefighters and lifeguards responded to multiple emergencies — including a critical near-drowning incident — at Makena State Park on Saturday.
In the most serious incident, a 67-year-old man from Oregon was knocked down by a wave and was pulled unresponsive from the water by his family.
Lifeguards administered CPR, and the man eventually regained a pulse and was able to breathe on his own. He was transported to Maui Memorial Medical Center in critical condition.
At least three other water-related accidents requiring medical attention were reported.
In each incident, people were injured in the shorebreak.
Maui fire officials advised beachgoers unfamiliar or inexperienced with ocean conditions to heed all warning signs posted at beaches and speak with a lifeguard at guarded beaches for information and advice before entering the ocean.
