At 12:16 p.m. on Monday, emergency crews in South Maui responded to Ulua Beach in Wailea, after an unresponsive male was reported pulled from the water.
Firefighters arrived at 12:21 p.m. and found bystanders on the beach performing CPR on a male victim. Firefighters and paramedics continued with life-saving measures, however, despite all efforts the man could not be revived and was pronounced dead at the scene.
The male victim is a 66-year-old visitor from Saskatchewan, Canada.
He had been scuba diving with a family member and had just exited the water. The man went back into the water and was assisting the family member with their gear and swimming back to shore when he suddenly became unresponsive.
Other beachgoers pulled the man to shore and initiated CPR.
