Here's life saver, Samuel Perez.
Many kite surfers live to ride but, in a dramatic twist of fate, it is a kite surfing ride that saves the life of a man found unconscious in the middle of Kailua Bay.
When the wind's up, kite surfers converge on Kailua Beach. Monday afternoon 6/25, Sammie Perez Hults was one of those who launched his kite in the blustery conditions.
His ride around the bay then took a detour when he noticed a kite floundering on the water, while its rider lay motionless -- hundreds of yards offshore.
"I saw him floating upside down and thought maybe he was taking a rest. One second passed then two, and I realized he was not coming up," said Samuel Perez Hults, a Kailua kite surfer.
