A 69-year-old Colorado man who was found floating face-down in waters off Kauai's Brennecke's beach Saturday afternoon is in critical condition at the Queen's Medical Center, Kauai officials said.

The man had been brought to shore by beachgoers, and a bystander and a lifeguard were administering cardio pulmonary resuscitation until Kauai firefighters and medics arrived, officials said.

Firefighters had been called around 2:10 p.m. 

The victim was transported to Wilcox Memorial Hospital and then flown to Honolulu Saturday night.
