Ocean Safety lifeguards rescued eight people today in waters off Makaha after their boat capsized.
Just before 11 a.m. today, Ocean Safety and the U.S. Coast Guard responded to a call of a capsized 23-foot vessel approximately 250 yards off of the Makaha Surfside apartments.
Ocean Safety personnel were initially driving on Farrington Highway when they spotted a group of people sitting on the front of a boat in the ocean as they attempted to bail water out of the vessel.
The boat then overturned, tossing eight people onboard into the ocean, according to the Ocean Safety & Lifeguard Services Division.
Lifeguards on Jet skis rescued the individuals and safely brought them to shore. No injuries were reported.
The boat remains stuck on the reef off Makaha.
