SEATTLE — A Seattle firefighter had a harrowing day on a Hawaiian trail when he and his daughter were caught in torrential rains and became stranded on the Island of Kauai.
The dream vacation quickly turned into a nightmare, but firefighter Joaquin Hubbard proved he's the right guy to have around when things go wrong.
"They asked if we wanted to go on a hike with them and it sounded great. You know, it was a beautiful day," Hubbard said. "It was a bit windy, but it was sunny, really nice big waves on the coast and humpback whales."
