Two tourists had to be rescued from their sinking car after they drove it into a boat harbour while reportedly following GPS direction. This event took place at the Honokohau Small Boat Harbour in Kailua-Kuna, Hawaii. Witness Christie Hutchinson captured the event on video which shows the sailboat crew helping the passengers out of their silver Chrysler Town and Country through the front window. The video also captured the car sinking into the harbor whilst its windshield wipers were still in motion. According to Ms Hutchinson, there were no visible signs of panic on the tourists’ faces as they calmly unbuckled themselves. She surmised that they must have taken their eyes off the road for a second. The tourists were not hurt and the car was later towed out of the harbour. Samantha Tavares, an information specialist for Hawaii’s Department of Transportation, said that it was a “rare” incident because GPS directions are usually accurate in the state.
