Sharon Pomroy, a candidate for Office of Hawaiian Affairs Kauai and Niihau trustee, has been taken off life support following her collapse at a OHA meet-and-greet event on Kauai last week, her family has confirmed.

Pomroy, 63, suffered a pair of seizures shortly after concluding her remarks Wednesday evening at the Aston Aloha Beach Hotel. She then suffered a massive heart attack while being prepared for transport to Wilcox Memorial Hospital.

She never regained consciousness.
