Hawaii Island police have confirmed the identity of a man, whose body was found in the Wailuku River on Sunday.

According to the Hawaii Police Department, 28-year-old Kelly Mrowinski of Chicago, drowned after he and a male co-worker were swept into the Wailuku River by an apparent flash flood on Jan. 26.

“The male was able to swim to shore, however, after an extensive aerial and land search, Mrowinski could not be located,” police said in a statement.

Mrowinski’s death was ruled as accidental by the medical examiner, who ruled “fresh water drowning” was the cause.
