UPDATED: It appears the injured party was the child of a family friend with the Obamas in Hawaii. The injury is reportedly minor, and one report said Obama went back to the golf course!
BREAKING NEWS: Reports indicate President Obama suddenly left the golf course in Hawaii where he was playing a round of golf to return to his $9 million vacation estate where a "family friend" has reportedly been injured in a surfboard accident:
President Barack Obama has abruptly ended a round of golf and sped toward his family's vacation home for what is being described as a "personal matter." An ambulance was seen speeding toward their compound.
White House aides said the speedy departure and return to the president's home was not a matter of national security or because of a threat to Obama's safety.
Obama was playing golf when reporters who travel with him were quickly assembled for a return to the first family's neighborhood.
Journalists saw an ambulance speed past with its lights on, heading toward the end of Obama's street. The ambulance would have passed through a security checkpoint at the end of the street. . . . DEVELOPING
