Surfer drowns in Makapuu waters

MAKAPUU, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A surfer who survived nearly drowning about two months ago, died Tuesday after a session at Makapuu on Oahu's east side.

Emergency officials say Dwayne Scharsch, 45, was surfing with friends at about 3 p.m. when he ran into trouble in the water.

Paramedics rushed him to the hospital in critical condition, where he later died.

Scharsch was also hospitalized in December after suffering a heart attack at Sandy Beach.
