7 people rescued from Oahu surf

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) A high surf warning is in effect for many areas of the state.

KGMB-TV reports that seven people had to be rescued Tuesday when they got too close to huge waves on Oahu's North Shore.

Honolulu firefighters saved three men near Laniakea. Capt. John Hoogsteden of the Ocean Safety and Lifeguard Services Division says the men were recent arrivals to the islands and went for a swim. He says they got stuck in a rip current more than a half-mile from shore.

Hoogsteden says two hours later a 16-year-old boy and his mother nearly drowned at Ke Iki Beach near Pupukea.

The National Weather Service says Hawaii residents on the north and west shores of the state can expect waves of up to 30 feet on Wednesday.
