HALEAKALA NATIONAL PARK >> Authorities say a 38-year-old California man has died after he ended up submerged in a pool in Haleakala National Park.

Maui County police say firefighters pulled Rajeesh Padmanabhan from the Seven Sacred Pools, a popular hiking site in Kipahulu, on Friday afternoon.

Lt. William Juan says Padmanabhan was found to be unresponsive and emergency responders attempted CPR.

He was declared dead a short time later.

Padmanabhan was visiting from San Ramon, Calif.

Police, paramedics and firefighters also responded to a near-drowning off Kaanapali Saturday afternoon.
