Hawaii County fire rescue personnel assisted in the recovery of an apparent drowning victim Sunday afternoon.

According to a Hawaii Country Fire Department report, the victim was initially transported back toward the Pohoiki boat ramp by a dive vessel. The operator of the dive boat was unable to perform CPR due to a lack of personnel on the boat.

The fire rescue crew recovered the victim from the dive vessel using a Billy Pugh net and brought the victim back to an area fronting Kalapana Seaview Estates. Personnel on the scene determined that the victim was "obviously (dead on arrival)," the fire report noted.
