2 teens rescued after boat capsizes in Kaneohe Bay

Two teenagers were rescued from Kaneohe Bay Saturday morning after firefighters found their boat capsized in the water.

The Honolulu Fire Department received a 911 call at 11:38 a.m. about a boater in distress in the bay. HFD sent five resource units staffed with approximately 17 personnel with the first firefighters arriving nine minutes later to begin looking for the boater.

Using HFD’s Air 1 helicopter, rescue personnel searched and found a 10-foot boat that had capsized in the water carrying two male teens who had been diving.

Honolulu Ocean Safety and HFD reached the boat using watercraft and the divers and their boat were brought back to shore.

Neither of the boys was injured, HFD reported.
