Dramatic Boat Rescue in Hawaii Caught on GoPro

Aug 06, 2014

Four children and four adults were rescued by helicopter after their boat capsized in rough waters off the coast of Mokolai in Hawaii Sunday. And it was all captured on a GoPro camera attached to one of the child's heads as he bobbed 12 miles off shore, waiting for help.

"It got scary rough real fast where waves were breaking over the bow and it happened really quick," crew member Jeff Kozlovich told Hawaii News Now. "Before we knew it, too much water was in the boat and we really couldn't steer well or maneuver."

Luckily the group, which had set out from Oahu for an overnight trip, was each wearing life vests and had three kayaks on board. As water began to sink the 21-foot vessel, the group abandoned ship and used their cell phones to call 911, although the US Coast Guard told local news that an "EPIRB" tracking device alerted them to the situation.
