In this image taken from video provided by the U.S. Coast Guard, the fishing vessel Pacific Paradise sinks 13 miles south of the Hawaiian island of Oahu following a near two-month effort to remove the vessel from a reef off Honolulu's Waikiki, Thursday, Dec. 7, 2017. The commercial fishing vessel was carrying foreign workers to Hawaii when it ran aground and later burned and leaked fuel just off the beaches of Waikiki. After being patched up and filled with foam to regain buoyancy, the 79-foot (24-meter) Pacific Paradise was hooked to a tug boat and hauled into deeper water as a crowd of people on the beach cheered. The boat was sunk at an EPA-approved site. (Lt. Mike Laurence/U.S. Coast Guard via AP)
