Man drowns despite heroic fisherman’s rescue effort

Date Posted: 2012-08-24

The first word of a man floating face down on the surface of the sea came to the Nirai Fire Station at 2:33 p.m., advising of the incident off Kadena Marina.

While rescue paramedics were en route to the Kadena Marina in Kaneku district of Kadena Town, an angler went into the water 400 meters offshore, rescued the man and brought him to shore, and began attempts to resuscitate him. Paramedics transported the victim to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 4:30 p.m.

The man, as yet unidentified, is believed to be 40-50 years of age. Both Kadena Police and the Nirai Fire Station are investigating the cause of the death.
