The victim, described as a Chinese woman in her 40s, was reportedly snorkeling just before noon when the Maui Fire Department was alerted of the incident.

First responders took the victim to shore aboard a rescue water craft, where she was examined and later transported to the Maui Memorial Medical Center in critical condition.

Officials say the victim appeared to have inhaled water.
