A 51-year-old male visitor from Sechelt, British Columbia, Canada, drowned in waters off Wainiha on Kauai’s north shore Tuesday afternoon — the fifth person to drown this year.

A bystander called police dispatch at 4:26 p.m. after noticing the man’s body lying face down in the Wainiha River, fronting a vacation rental near the Wainiha General Store.

Firefighters from the Kaiakea fire station responded to the scene and immediately began performing CPR until paramedics arrived and transported the man to Wilcox Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
