Ocean Safety officials urge public to listen to lifeguards

EAST HONOLULU, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Ocean Safety officials are urging the public to listen to lifeguards for their own safety.

Officials released photos of five men at the Halona Blow Hole Saturday who repeatedly ignored city lifeguard requests to move from the edge to a safer location. A large swell then crashed into the rocks, putting them at an even higher risk of danger.

Ocean Safety lifeguards responded to the situation and found all five men climbing up the rocks to safety when they arrived.

No injuries were reported.
