Both the Coast Guard and the Honolulu Fire Department came to the aid of a 52-year-old man who apparently got into trouble while fishing from a kayak early this morning off Waialua.
The fire department was called about 4:34 a.m. by the Coast Guard to assist. Using its helicopter, the Coast Guard located the kayak at 5 a.m. about 400 yards off Aweoweo Beach Park in Waialua.
Both the fire department and the Coast Guard put rescue swimmers into the water just before 5:30 a.m. to help the fisherman bring the kayak to shore.
No injuries were reported.
