Lihue woman dies swimming in Kalapaki Bay

LIHUE, Hawaii (AP) - A 67-year-old Lihue woman found unresponsive in Kalapaki Bay has died.

The Garden Island reports Karen Lardizabal was pulled from the water Wednesday night.

County officials say Lardizabal was a good swimmer and often swam in the Kalapaki Bay area.

A doctor swimming in the bay carried Lardizabal to shore and performed CPR until medics took her to Wilcox Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

A cause of death has not been determined and autopsy results are pending.
