A Vancouver man possibly drowned while swimming with his wife at Maui’s Kamaole Beach Park.

Officials say that the couple from Vancouver were swimming about 11 a.m. Tuesday when the wife turned around and saw that her husband was face down in the water. The 50-year-old man was pulled to shore, where bystanders began CPR.

Lifeguards and fire personnel arrived and continued CPR before a medical team took over. However, efforts to revive the man were unsuccessful and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

The man’s identity has not been released.
