Two men apparently drowned Thursday in separate incidents on Oahu.

Police said an unidentified man died Thursday afternoon in an apparent drowning near the Turtle Bay Resort. Police said the man’s body was found floating in the ocean about 5:25 p.m., and was in his 40s to 50s.

He was in extremely critical condition when he was transported at 5:30 p.m. today to a hospital where he died, an Emergency Medical Services supervisor said.

Police said a 76-year-old man apparently drowned at Hanauma Bay. Police got the call at about 11 a.m. The man was taken to the hospital, where he died.

The ocean around the Turtle Bay has risks. There is often a strong current and the clarity of the water is poor. That, along with the normal risks of wana and sharp coral .... and no lifeguards.

I wonder if UH is doing any research into breathing highly oxygenate water like perfluorocarbon?

I've seen the videos of a lab mouse breathing water and know that human babies "breath liquid" while in the womb although the oxygen they receive is through the umbilical cord.

For those whose brains that have not suffered irreparable damage due to oxygen deprivation, saturating the lungs with perfluorocarbon and infusing the blood with O2 would appear to be a good last resort to revive the victim.
