Emergency crews in West Maui responded to a person pulled from the ocean fronting the sands of Kahana
Condominium on Lower Honoapiilani Road Tuesday afternoon.

At 2:37 p.m., a police officer arrived at the scene 2 minutes later and took over CPR from bystanders on the beach.

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.

Bystanders helped to bring the man up the beach and got CPR started.

Firefighters and paramedics from Napili, and a Lahaina ladder company responded to the incident.
