A man visiting from Missouri appears to have drowned this afternoon in near shore waters off Ka’anapali Beach.
Maui Police, Fire and rescue crews and paramedics responded to a call at 4:30 p.m. along Ka’anapali Parkway regarding an unresponsive male. The man had reportedly been snorkeling just a few feet from shore when witnesses noticed he was experience trouble.
Beachgoers helped the man to shore and began CPR – continuing until emergency units arrived. All life saving measures were unsuccessful and the victim died. Cause of death will be released following an autopsy.
