By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 08:53 a.m. HST, Nov 11, 2013

Honolulu fire officials say a 52-year-old Japanese tourist has been found dead in shallow waters off Kahala Beach.

Honolulu Fire Capt. Tyler Chan said the woman found early Monday appears to have drowned, but investigators are still trying to determine exactly what happened.

Chan says a friend of the woman called emergency officials about 4:30 a.m. Monday, saying the woman had gone for a swim overnight but didn't return.

Chan says the woman was found about two hours later in shallow waters about 150 to 200 yards offshore.

Chan says a rescue swimmer recovered the woman, who showed no signs of life.

Prolly a tourist who couldn't swim well, and unaware of the ocean's conditions. My sympathy to the poor woman.

She just wanted to go to heaven. How does one drown in the shallows of Kahala? Because one wants to.

Who goes wimming at 4:30am? Maybe alcohol involved, or maybe more to the story?
