HUGE Wave Sweeps People Away in Waimea Bay, Hawaii – Jan. 22, 2023 -

A large wave swept a baby under a home on Oahu's North Shore on Sunday, but thankfully the child was uninjured.

The incident was one of dozens lifeguards and Honolulu EMS responded to as a powerful swell rolled in, bringing surf upwards of 50 feet.

The waves were big enough for “The Eddie” surf contest to be held. And organizers say an estimated 50,000 people flocked to Waimea Bay for the event.

With so many on the beaches, lifeguards were urging spectators to be aware — and never turn their back on the ocean.

Lifeguards said they rescued 64 people at Waimea Bay on Sunday.

Additionally, more than 10,500 preventive warnings were issued to beachgoers.

Around 4 p.m., Lifeguards responded to a 51-year- female along Ke Nui Road behind the Ehukai Tower, after a large wave pushed a concrete barrier into the patient.

Lifeguards treated her for a possible fracture and she was subsequently transported to an ER.

Earlier in the day, about 9:15 a.m., Ocean Safety responded to a home on Ke Iki Road on the North Shore after a large wave roared ashore, slamming into adults and a baby on the shoreline.

The baby was washed under the home, but quickly retrieved.

EMS said they evaluated the child and family members and none of them suffered any serious injuries.
