Fire crews rescue people after sailboat hits reef

HFD

Five people and their pet dog were rescued Friday after their boat ran aground.

It hit the reef off the Honolulu airport’s reef runway a little before 7:30 p.m.

No injuries were reported.

Crews will go back out Saturday to see how to best free the 29-foot vessel. They’ll also check to see how much damage was done to the reef.
