Pulled from the sea

hawaii rescue

MOLOKAI, Hawaii (KHNL) Four adults and four children traveling between Molokai and Oahu, Hawaii Sunday afternoon were forced to abandon ship when boat they were in sank in the Kaiwi Channel.

“We knew it was going to go down so we just started getting anything that we really needed like life jackets and I put my fins on and we all jumped in the water and the boat went over,” said Jeff Kozlovich.

The group left Sandy Beach Park around 1:30 p.m. They brought along three kayaks and the plan was to kayak back to Oahu on Monday.

They were 12 miles west of Molokai when their 21-foot vessel got hit by rough waters.
