Efforts to remove shipwreck off Waikiki fail again

Staff Writer |
Efforts to pull a commercial fishing boat stuck on the reef off Waikiki, Hi. failed again Wednesday.




Crews said they were suspending efforts to pull the Pacific Paradise out to sea after it got stuck on a sandbar as the tide started to drop, Hawaii News Now reports.

The U.S. Coast Guard said they'll return Thursday to renew salvage operations.

The 79-foot longline fishing vessel ran aground off Kaimana Beach on Oct. 10 when it was returning to its Honolulu home port from American Samoa with 20 people on board.

An investigation into what caused the accident is ongoing, and officials say it will ramp up considerably once their recovery response is complete.
