A 73-year-old visitor from Colorado was in critical condition today after she was pulled unconscious from Kapalua Bay in West Maui.
According to a Maui Fire Department report, the woman was snorkeling with a relative about 200 feet from shore when she became unresponsive. The relative called for help and a nearby paddleboarder helped bring the woman to shore.
People on the beach, including a vacationing physician, performed CPR on the woman until paramedics and fire rescue personnel arrived.
The woman was transported to Maui Memorial Medical Center.
