On Saturday May 18 at 12:57 p.m., the Department of Fire & Public Safety was called to assist in the rescue of a scuba diver in distress near Mala Wharf.
Officials say a 28- year-old female got separated from her scuba diving group and ended up on a shallow reef.
A witness on the beach called 9-1-1.
When fire fighters arrived, the woman was waving her arms. A lifeguard on a rescue watercraft arrived on scene along with a firefighter on a surfboard.
The woman was brought in to shore and did not need any medical treatment.
