Visitor apparently drowns off Kihei, Maui


A 50-year-old Washington man died this morning in an apparent drowning off Kihei, Maui.

The man and his wife, visiting from Vancouver, Wash., were swimming at Kamaole Beach Park III.

When the wife turned around, she found her husband floating face down in the water, the Maui Fire Department said. The wife pulled her husband to shore, and beachgoers helped to bring him onto the beach.

The Fire Department was alerted at 11:20 a.m.

Beachgoers began cardiopulmonary resuscitation until the arrival of lifeguards and fire personnel, who continued CPR.

American Medical Response arrived and resumed patient care, but the man could not be revived.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.
