Condominium on Lower Honoapiilani Road Tuesday afternoon.

Paramedics and firefighters arrived shortly after and continued with advanced life-saving measures. The male victim was transported to Maui Memorial Medical Center in critical condition.

The male victim is a 66-year-old California visitor. The man was found floating face down and unresponsive by a family member about 10 feet from shore. The man was snorkeling with the family member and was last seen doing okay around 5 or 10 minutes prior.
