The Honolulu Fire Dept. reports that aÂ visitorÂ died after being found in waters off Spitting Caves.
The call came in at 2:51 p.m. Saturday of a swimmer in distress. Five males went swimming and one of them was having trouble in the water.
The 21-year-old man from Washington state apparently was underwater for more than a half-hour. Rescue crews were able to retrieve the unresponsive swimmer and took him to the Hawaii Kai boat ramp.
â€œYou know, itâ€™s just, people see these places on social media, and they think they can handle it, they donâ€™t understand the ocean and the currents that we have here,â€ said Battalion Chief John Bowers.
