Large group caught in Maui flash flood at stream

WAILUKU, Hawaii (AP) - Thirty-six students and 10 adults are safe after getting caught in a Maui flash flood.

Maui fire officials say that aside from five with bumps and bruises, those in the group were not seriously injured.

They got caught in a flash flood Thursday at the Waihee stream about 100 feet upstream from the river mouth. They were able to make it out to the banks of the stream when rescuers arrived.

The students were evaluated by medics and did not require ambulance transport.
