Man dies while swimming on Big Isle

Big Island fire personnel said a man in his 30s died yesterday while swimming in the Hilo area.

Fire rescue personnel were called to Puu Maile, a diving and fishing area inaccessible by car, at about 1:29 p.m. Beachgoers pointed to an area where a swimmer in distress was seen waving for help.

The Fire Department used a rescue boat and a helicopter and located the man.

A Fire Department diver recovered the man from the ocean floor. Medical personnel on shore could not revive the man. He was pronounced dead at Hilo Medical Center.


Man charged in stabbing of neighbor

Big Island police have charged a 72-year-old Kapaau man with attempted murder and assault in connection with the stabbing of a 90-year-old woman in Kapaau.

North Kohala patrol officers responded on Christmas Eve to a report of a stabbing at an apartment complex on Ainakea Drive.

Officers found a 90-year-old woman who had been stabbed multiple times in her apartment.

She identified her assailant as a neighbor who lives in the same complex. Officers arrested 72-year-old Raymond Talisay on suspicion of attempted murder.

Fire Department personnel took the victim to North Hawaii Community Hospital, where she was listed in stable condition.

Detectives charged Talisay on Sunday with one count of attempted second-degree murder and one count of first-degree assault. Talisay was being held at the Kona Police Cellblock in lieu of $55,000 bail.
