Miracle at Sea, local pilot lands in ocean and lives

Good morning! I'm listening to an interview I recorded in 2017 with local girl Sydnie Uemoto, a commercial pilot who on July 14, 2016, was flying in a small private plane with another pilot from Oahu to Kona when the plane lost power and they landed in the Alenuihaha Channel. Sydnie and David McMahon swam for 20 hours, overnight, before being rescued. It's a story with a super happy ending, but also very emotional to hear. For those interested, Part 1 is with Sydnie Uemoto and Part 2 is with Sydnie Uemoto and her mother, Andrina Uemoto, about what the family knew and when they knew it. It's an amazing story about a miraculous event. for the podcasts of Parts 1 and 2 Aloha! Sherry Bracken
