HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Honolulu Medical Examiner's office has identified the boy who died Sunday after he was pulled from shallow waters off Leeward Oahu as Kody Kaitoku, 14, of Wahiawa.

Authorities say Kaitoku was fishing near the surf spot known as Depots, when he slipped on some rocks and hit his head. Police say family members later discovered him unresponsive in the water.

An autopsy will be performed Tuesday to determine the exact cause of death.
