Salvage team tows wrecked fishing boat off Hawaii reef

The fishing vessel Pacific Paradise is towed out to sea after being removed from a reef just off Waikiki where it ran aground nearly two months ago, Thursday, Dec. 7, 2017 in Honolulu. The commercial fishing vessel was carrying foreign workers to Hawaii when it crashed into the reef and later caught fire and leaked fuel into the ocean. It will be sunk by a team of salvage workers at an EPA-approved site about 13 miles south of Oahu. (AP Photo/Caleb Jones)
