The Coast Guard and Honolulu firefighters rescued 20 fishermen after their vessel ran aground off of Diamond Head early today.
On Tuesday night, the Coast Guard said watchstanders received reports of a grounded 79-foot commercial fishing vessel Pacific Paradise less than a mile off of Diamond Head near the Outrigger Canoe Club.
A Coast Guard response boat medium and MH-65 Dolphin helicopter responded. The Honolulu Fire Department also arrived at the scene to assist.
The crew on the response boat medium transported a majority of the fishermen to the Ala Wai Boat Harbor and the Dolphin helicopter airlifted two fishermen to the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport.
No injuries were reported.
The cause of the grounding is under investigation.
