Kayakers rescued in Lanikai

Ocean Safety lifeguards rescued two 23-year-old kayakers today who lost their kayak in waters off Lanikai.

The two men were kayaking at about 11:45 a.m. near the Lanikai reef a half-mile from shore when a wave overturned their kayak, Emergency Services Department spokeswoman Shayne Enright said. The wind then blew the kayak away from them.

Ocean Safety personnel used a rescue watercraft to rescue the men and return them back to their kayak.

Surf was up 6 to 8 feet, and conditions were very windy.
