A visitor has been pronounced dead at an area hospital after being pulled from waters at the Hilton Hawaiian Village lagoon this morning.

Bryan Cheplic, spokesman for the city Emergency Services Department, said paramedics were sent to the lagoon area just prior to 10:30 a.m.

The victim, who appeared to be in his 70s, was treated and stabilized at the scene before being transported to the hospital in critical condition, Cheplic said.
