A 13-year-old juvenile was transported to Oʻahu for care after being pulled from a pool in Kapalua on Maui Tuesday afternoon.
Officers responded to the pool area of a hotel located at 1 Kapalua Bay Drive at around 3:29 p.m. on Aug. 2, for a report of an unresponsive teen.
Upon police arrival, the victim, who had regained consciousness, was being treated by Medic and Fire personnel. Police say a preliminary investigation reveals the victim was fully submerged, unable to surface and receive air before being pulled onto the deck by bystanders.

Maui police have classified the case as a miscellaneous accident.
