The couple filed a $5 million lawsuit against a Hawaii tourism company because the company allegedly left them stranded in the water.
In the complaint released in recent days, the couple claims that in September 2021 what was literally described in the previous paragraph, without an ounce of exaggeration.
Alexander Burckle and Elizabeth Webster snorkeled on their wedding day at Lanai, a small island near Maui, and at one point, when the waters turned rough, they noticed a lead ship that had sailed without them, Maui Sail.

The exiles, alone and with a low tribute of tribute, tried to stay by swimming anew, and made vain signs of distress.
According to Insider, Burckle and Webster can be found in a lawsuit after the alleged desertion ended up in deeper and rougher waters. “Swimming conditions in the ocean begin to stir and struggle. They feared that drowning was imminent, the lawsuit said.
A few minutes after today’s fight, both washed up on Lanai beach “exhausted and dehydrated.” Once there the woman tried to write the words “SOS” and “Help” so that some plane passing over the area would see them.
Finally, the safety of the local residents would be those who found them, gave them water, and allowed them to use their telephones.
Later, Webster would call Maui’s screen and tell him, according to the affidavit, that he didn’t realize someone had left on a trip he had scheduled hours earlier.
The firm words of the lawyer
Jared Washkowitz, the couple’s attorney, told Insider that the county was troubled by the road. Naui Maui said it “didn’t set limits,” didn’t set lifeguards, and didn’t have a specific tourist support system.

The lawyer claimed that the tour company had made three counts when the couple was in the water and did not realize that two people were missing until it was too late.
“They spent a lot of time in the water, and if they weren’t young, healthy, athletic people, they probably would have drowned,” Washkowitz said.
