Advertiser Staff

A man who appeared to be in his 60s died of an apparent drowning Saturday at Makapu'u Beach Park.

Lifeguards were coming on duty around 8:40 a.m. when they saw bystanders pulling a man out of the water, said Bryan Cheplic, spokesman for the city's Emergency Services Department.

Lifeguards performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation until paramedics arrived.

The man was transported to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Cheplic said.

The surf was about 2 to 3 feet and choppy, Cheplic said.
