LIHU'E, Kaua'i — Water safety personnel were able to revive a 44-year-old Kekaha man pulled from the surf at Kekaha about 9:30 a.m. today.

Lifeguards pulled the victim out of the shoreline waves about 60 yards from the Kekaha lifeguard tower after beachgoers reported a man in distress.

The victim was revived and taken to Kaua'i Veterans Memorial Hospital, where he was reported in critical but stable condition.
