Two people were injured in two different near drownings today, according to Bryan Cheplic, spokesman for the city's Emergency Services Department.

At 11 a.m. in Waikiki, a man in his 70s was brought in near shore where lifeguards performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation, Cheplic said. The man was taken by paramedics in critical condition.

Then at 1 p.m. at Hanauma Bay, a woman in her 30s was given cardiopulmonary resuscitation by lifeguards and was revived. Paramedics took her to a trauma center in critical condition.
