Man, 56, who died in Hawaii Kai boating accident is identified

A 56-year-old man who died from injuries from a boat propeller in waters off Hawaii Kai Saturday has been identified as Michael K. Erickson of Honolulu, according to the Honolulu Medical Examiner’s Office.

Honolulu fire rescue crews responded to a call of a boater in distress about a half-mile offshore just before 6:50 p.m. Saturday.

Honolulu Fire spokesman Capt. Malcolm Medrano said a 56-year-old man fell overboard after the boat he was riding in struck a pole.

Erickson sustained traumatic injuries to his upper body from the boat propeller.

Fire rescue crews brought him to shore where Emergency Medical Services personnel administered life-saving efforts to no avail.
