At 1:51 p.m. on Wednesday, March 7, 2018, emergency crews in East Maui responded to mile marker 21 on the Hana Highway for a person that fell into a pond and did not resurface. At 2:26 p.m. firefighters arrived at West Wailua Iki Stream in Wailua and learned that a 27-year-old male had fallen into the pond while taking photos on the stream bank. A friend jumped in to try to save him, but was not able to keep the man afloat without being pulled underwater by the victim. Bystanders had to drive out in order to get cell phone reception to call 911 dispatchers.
