A 45-year-old female tourist was taken to a hospital in critical condition today after she was pulled from the ocean in front of the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa while snorkeling, Maui fire officials said.
Other snorkelers brought the woman to shore and Maui firefighters were called at 1:30 p.m. They arrived to find Sheraton employees performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation, fire officials said.
Fire officials did not immediately know where the woman is from, but said she is a visitor.
