An Arizona family's first trip to Hawaii has ended in tragedy.
According to family and Maui police, Wendi Van Briesen was body surfing with her 13-year-old son on Makena Beach when a huge wave crashed on top of her. Her husband and daughter watched the incident from shore.
Van Briesen was rushed to the hospital in critical condition, but died Saturday from a spinal cord injury.
She was 42 years old.
