A Navy boat was flipped by a wave in Kaneohe Bay on Friday. Five sailors were rescued. A Naval Special Warfare Command spokesman said that two rigid inflatable boats were passing through the channel, when one of the boats was “broadsided by a wave” and capsized. The two boats were in the middle of routine training on their way to Marine Corps Base Hawaii. Fire fighters and lifeguards rescued the five people, one sustaining injuries. The spokesman did not disclose the identities of the sailors and where they are based. He did say, though, that the sailors are part of the Naval Special Warfare Command, centered around the Navy SEALs.
