NORTH SHORE, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -
Honolulu police say a visitor from San Diego who drowned Sunday at Waimea Falls wasn't trying to save a woman, as was previously reported.
Police tell Hawaii News Now that after further investigation 31-year-old Kris Gungon did not die while trying to rescue a female swimmer. Statements by witnesses indicate that the Gungon was trying to swim out to the waterfall when he apparently drowned.
Fire officials originally said on Sunday that Gungon and his family were near the falls when a woman who was swimming became distressed and that Gungon went to assist her.
Gungon was a U.S. Border Patrol agent who was on vacation with his wife and daughter.
The Honolulu Medical Examiner is still awaiting the results of several tests before releasing their findings.
