Kauai lifeguards resuscitate man after near-drowning incident


Kauai lifeguards resuscitated a 61-year-old visitor from Dubuque, Iowa, involved in a near-drowning  at Haena Beach on Saturday morning.

The man had been snorkeling about 20 yards offshore when he apparently became distressed and was brought to shore by a relative.

Lifeguards performed CPR on the unresponsive man until he regained consciousness and began breathing on his own a few minutes later.

The man was transported to Wilcox Memorial Hospital in an undisclosed condition.
