Emergency personnel in South Maui responded to the Wailea Beach fronting the Four Seasons Resort for a report of a man that was pulled from the ocean shortly after 11:30 a.m., on Wednesday, June 7, 2017.
Authorities say the 58-year-old visitor from North Carolina, was found floating and unresponsive, and was brought to shore by beach goers.
Firefighters and paramedics from Wailea arrived to find a police officer, resort beach attendants, and a vacationing physician performing CPR on the male victim.
