A 36-year-old Ewa Beach woman died after her kayak capsized in waters off Leeward Oahu Monday.
The Honolulu Medical Examiner’s Office has identified her as Eunhee Lee.
Honolulu firefighters responded to a 911 call from a man who reported his wife missing at 12:38 p.m. Monday after a kayak they were on with their son capsized in waters approximately 500 yards from the shoreline.
The kayak overturned in an area between Oneula Beach Park, also known as “Hau Bush” and White Plains Beach.
The man also reported his wife was not wearing a flotation device at the time.
Fire rescue crews conducted a search. At approximately 1 p.m., rescue crews and lifeguards noticed an unresponsive person later identified as Lee on a reef, according to the Honolulu Fire Department.
They brought her to shore at White Plains where they administered cardiopulmonary resuscitation and used an automated external defibrillator.
Lee was taken to The Queen’s Medical Center-West Oahu where she was pronounced dead.
Her husband and son did not sustain any injuries.
