Three rescued after their boat capsizes near Honolulu Airport

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Three boaters are safe after their 16-foot boat capsized about a mile south of Honolulu International Airport.

According to the U.S. Coast Guard, the vessel capsized at about 12:30 p.m. Saturday. The Coast Guard used a 45-foot response boat, while the Honolulu Fire Department deployed its Air One helicopter. A Honolulu ocean safety lifeguard on a jet ski also assisted.

The boaters, aged 43, 44 and 51, had put on life jackets before the boat capsized, the Coast Guard said.

The capsized vessel is still in the water and is scheduled to be salvaged. Authorities said 15 gallons of gasoline are still aboard the vessel, but there were no signs of pollution.
