The Honolulu Medical Examiner’s office has identified the person killed in a diving-related incident at Lanikai on Saturday as 59-year-old Sri Shim of Kailua.
Shim and his 25-year-old stepson were free diving in waters off Lanikai beach at about 1 p.m. when the stepson was struck by a passing boat.
The younger man was taken to shore and later transported to the Queen’s Medical Center.
Honolulu Fire Department and Ocean Safety personnel initiated a subsequent search for Shim after his kayak was located approximately 600 feet offshore.
Shim’s body was recovered two hours later about 200 feet from the vessel.
The cause of death is undetermined pending an autopsy.
