Coast Guard rescues missing jet skier

HONOLULU (KHNL) - A jet skier who disappeared at sea is now safe.

Search crews rescued Gerald Lum in waters off the windward coast Thursday night.

Lum was rescued about four nautical miles south of Koko Head at about 10:20 PM. 

Coast Guard located the jet skier after they noticed a faint light emitting from his flashlight.

Lum departed Kaiona Beach in Waimanalo at 2:00 PM on a five-person jet ski en route to Hale O Lono Harbor on the southwest coast of Molokai.

But he never made it in the rough waters.

Crews say they found Lum in good condition.
