3-3 Maui

The U.S. Coast Guard medically evacuated four people Tuesday after they sustained jellyfish stings while snorkeling near Molokini Crater, Maui.

Crews received a call from a charter vessel stating one adult and three children had been stung by jellyfish while they were snorkeling near Molokini Crater.

The Coast Guard says a 25-foot response boat arrived at 10:10 a.m. and transferred the injured people to the Kihei Boat Ramp where emergency medical services were waiting.

The adult was in shock and the three children sustained minor injuries.
