Oregon Man Pulled from Ocean in Wailea, Revived
An Oregon man was transported to the hospital in stable condition after being pulled unresponsive from the ocean at Ulua Beach in Wailea on Sunday morning, April 24, 2016.
The incident was reported at 9:05 a.m. and firefighters arrived at 9:14 a.m. to find a man lying on the beach with family members.
Fire officials say the 62-year-old man was snorkeling with a family member when he suddenly complained of feeling fatigued. He was assisted back to shore by the family member but became unresponsive when they reached the beach, according to department reports.
Bystanders initiated CPR for about 5 minutes until the man began breathing again on his own.
Firefighters treated the man with oxygen until paramedics arrived and eventually transported him to Maui Memorial Medical Center in stable condition.
