A 58-year-old man who died after he was found unresponsive at Honolua Bay on Maui has been identified as William Torrie of Alberta, Canada.

Shortly after 2:15 p.m. Wednesday, police said emergency crews responded to a report of an unresponsive snorkeler, later identified as Torrie, who was pulled to shore from the water.

The Maui Fire Department said he was snorkeling with family members when he was found unconscious and brought to shore.
