HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A memorial service for the late "Peter" Frank Chi is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 10 at the Stan Sheriff Center.

Visitation begins at 4:30 p.m. with the service starting at 5:30 p.m. The memorial service is open to the public and guests should enter the arena through Gate A.

Chi, 19, a member of the University of Hawai‘i men's swimming team, died of an apparent cardiac arrest after he was found unresponsive Saturday in his UH Manoa dorm room.

The Waiakea High School graduate was being treated for Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, a condition that can cause rapid heart rates. Chi's coach said the athlete was diagnosed after collapsing two years ago.
