A Kuristown woman was critically injured during the Maui-to-Molokai Pailolo Challenge outrigger canoe race when she was apparently caught in the propellers of a boat.
The incident occurred around 8:54 a.m. in waters off D.T. Fleming Beach Park in Kapalua.
The woman, believed to be in her 60s, was brought ashore, where lifeguards began immediate life-saving efforts until paramedic and firefighters arrived.
The woman was transported to Napili Park, where a medevac helicopter was waiting to take her to Maui Memorial Medical Center.
