Army Soldier Surfing Dies in Hawaii When Fishing Boat Runs Over Him

An accident this morning at Waianae Small Boat Harbor involving a fishing boat and a man on a surfboard resulted in the death of the man. According to the DLNR Division of Conservation and Resources Enforcement (DOCARE), sometime between 7 to 7:30, a man staying at the nearby Waianae Rest Camp was on a surfboard just outside the harbor. A 21-foot recreational powerboat exiting the harbor ran over the man. He is in the Army stationed at Fort Shafter.

The man was brought back to shore by the vessel with assistance from a commercial tour boat.

Honolulu Police (HPD) and Fire and DOCARE responded. HPD is taking the lead in the investigation, with assistance from DOCARE.

DLNR extends its deepest sympathy to the man’s family.
