The Medical Examiner's Office says a 60-year-old Pearl City man drowned while fishing Sunday on the Pearl City Peninsula.

The victim was identified as Gerald Wond, of Pearl City. His death was classified as accidental.

Honolulu firefighters were called to Pearl City Peninsula after a report of a body floating about 20 feet from shore Sept. 15.

Witnesses saw him fishing from shore earlier in the day.

Police say there were no signs of foul play.

In another report someone said he usually went fishing with his wife. But on that day he went alone. Maybe if she was there this wouldn't have happened. I don't know. My ALOHA to his ohana.

I'm not blaming the wife. I'm just saying this accident could have been prevented or not be as bad. She could've called 911, could've helped him if he slipped, yelled for someone to help. People were in the area and saw him fishing.
