Pedestrian Run Over by Bus, Rescued Sailors Arrive, Cool & Windy

PEDESTRIAN KILLED IN BUS CRASH

Overnight, a man in his 60's was killed trying to catch a city bus on South King Street. Police say it appears he was trying to chase down the bus and somehow fell under the rear wheels as it was pulling away. We're gathering details and will have those for you on Sunrise starting at 4:30.

RESCUED SAILING TRIO ARRIVES IN HONOLULU

Those three Canadian visitors sailing to Hilo from Mexico who lost their sailboat mast and had to be rescued have just arrived in Honolulu on a container ship. We were there as the father, his brother, and his 9 year old son came off the Horizon Reliance cargo ship that was called in by the Coast Guard to assist. The sailors ran into trouble nearly 280 miles northeast of Hilo. Family and friends from the Big Island were there to greet the rescued sailors. Ramsay Wharton is covering their arrival and will bring us live reports. See more on their ordeal here.
