Maui Fire Department responded to an area four miles off Sands of Kahana in the area of the Pailolo Channel on Saturday afternoon for a report of personal water craft operators in distress.

Department of Fire & Public Safety officials say two parties were on board a PWC in the channel between Maui and Molokai when their water craft became inoperable as a result of mechanical issues.

They reportedly drifted for about an hour prior to rescue crews locating them.

The two individuals were located and brought to shore safely.
