The Honolulu Medical Examiner's Office on Wednesday identified a second man who died in an apparent double drowning off Kahala Beach as Michael Pui, 32, of Fountain Valley, Calif.

On Tuesday, the office identified Steve Tran, 31, of Santa Ana, Calif. as the other man who died in the incident. A cause of death is pending further studies for both men.

Police said two men, ages 31 and 32, became unresponsive while swimming at a local beach about 6 p.m. Saturday.

Lifeguards reached the men, who were wearing fins, about 500 yards offshore near Hunakai Street, a Honolulu Emergency Services Department spokeswoman said. Lifeguards performed CPR on the men, and paramedics took them to the hospital in critical condition.

Police said the men died at the hospital.

A third man was able to make it to shore safely with the help of a surfer.
