Security guard revives woman, 26, in near-drowning at Turtle Bay

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Dec 21, 2013

Paramedics took a 26-year-old woman to a hospital in serious condition Friday afternoon after an apparent near-drowning at the North Shore's Turtle Bay area, according to an Emergency Medical Services report.

A security guard spotted the woman face down in the water, jumped in, brought her to shore and performed cardiovascular resuscitation, which revived her, EMS said. Paramedics arrived and took over her care, taking her to a hospital.

The woman, a visitor, had been snorkeling in the area.


Correction: The security guard rescued and revived the woman. A previous version of this story said a lifeguard saved her.

So why wasn't the lifeguard the first one to see her?

What part of the beach was it? Are there C&C lifeguards there?

They corrected the story. Now it makes sense because they don't have lifeguards there.

I think management is too cheap to have lifeguards at the beach or even at the pool - am I off base on this?

Management want to keep their pool cafe exclusive for only guest. Ate at pool not knowing and later found out that we were not supposed to have a meal there. The next time we visited, we ate at beach restaurant which was less expensive and just as good. Dollar$ in the till is just that, makes no difference where or from whom it came from.

If the pool café is only open to hotel guests, then the waitress should have asked for your room number when taking your order. If they find out later, after you've eaten your meal, that you're not a registered hotel guest, then that would be management's problem.
