Kahuku Fundraiser Is Tonight For Prick­ett

MidWeek Islander (Windward Oahu) - - Windward Oahu Islander -

In­stead of the planned “talk story” ses­sion with world-renowned cin­e­matog­ra­pher Michael Prick­ett, Surfer the Bar will have a fundraiser tonight (March 28) for the stricken man, who was in­jured in midMarch while res­cu­ing a fel­low diver in Tahiti.

Prick­ett, a Mililani resi- dent, was re­port­edly help­ing film a com­mer­cial un­der­wa­ter when he saw a col­league in dis­tress. The deep dive to save him, and then the rise back to the sur­face, brought on se­ri­ous de­com­pres­sion ill­ness, caus­ing paral­y­sis. As of press time, Prick­ett re­mained un­der care in Tahiti, par­a­lyzed from the waist down.

Surfer the Bar, lo­cated at Tur­tle Bay Re­sort in Kahuku, will host the fundraiser in or­der to help pay for his re­cov­ery. Ac­cord­ing to Jodi Wil­mott, friend and host of the venue’s talk story se­ries, the ben­e­fit will be­gin at 6 p.m. For up­dated in­for­ma­tion, call bar man­ager Chris Pir­rone at 293-6000.
