The incident was reported at 4:42 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 9, 2015, off of Papalaua State Wayside Park in West Maui.

When the Lahaina fire crew arrived at 5 p.m., the woman and her child were already back on shore, according to department reports.

Fire officials say strong offshore winds hampered the woman’s efforts to return to shore.  Authorities say the woman and her child were visiting Maui from Denver, Colorado.
