Kayakers rescued near Kawaihae Pier



(KPUA) Two kayakers stranded in waters near Kawaihae Pier were rescued Sunday by Big Island firefighters and Coast Guard personnel. 

Rescue crews responding to a 12:27 p.m. emergency call, say the pair was unable to return to shore due to strong, northeasterly winds and deployed a swimmer to assist them. 

The Coast Guard cutter Kiska was in the area on a training exercise and transported the two kayakers to Kawaihae Pier.
