Two Canadian visitors suffered multiple lacerations to their head and body after being swept over the rocks by a large wave in West Maui on Monday morning.

Maui fire officials say the large wave dragged the male and female victim over the “rough rocky terrain” at about 9:58 a.m. in an area known as “Olivine Pools” in Kahakuloa.

The two were reported on dry land and out of the water near Mile 16 of Kahekili Highway.

According to officials, the victims were assessed at the scene and deemed “stable,” but could have endured potential skeletal injuries.

The victims, reported as residents of Quebec, were airlifted to the side of the highway, where an ambulance then transported them to the Maui Memorial Medical Center.
