Two rescued from grounded boat off Sand Island

Firefighters rescued two people this afternoon after a boat ran aground off Keehi Boat Harbor.

Honolulu Fire Capt. Kevin Mokulehua said the call came in about 2 p.m. and responding firefighters found the submerged 20-foot sailboat outside the harbor.

Firefighters used a personal watercraft to bring a man and woman from the boat back to shore without injury. He said the boat remained off shore and would need to be removed by a private contractor.

Mokulehua said the boat lost its motor then ran aground.
