Tragic Accident of Hawaii.The incident involved three kayak anglers who got into some serious trouble. A man and woman in boat went to help the three kayakers.  You will see that Robert Lewis is a true hero for being a Good Samaritan and helping a fellow ocean going angler. He died tying to help kayak anglers in distress. He died for people he did not even know. This man will forever be a hero and remembered for his valiant efforts. There is an effort in the kayak community to help the surviving wife of the fallen hero. The local kayak outfitter, P&P kayaks, has set up a fund to help the grieving family in need.  Please call (808) 880-1400 to make a donation
