A Sunday afternoon turned tragic at a popular spot in East Oahu.
Emergency officials responded to a swimmer in distress at “Spitting Caves” just before 2 p.m.
“A female in the water that had difficulty in the water. Two of her friends went in to try to assist her and unfortunately, they weren’t able to help her enough,” said Rick Mauer, acting battalion chief with the Honolulu Fire Department.
