Maui honeymooner drowns on Mother's Day

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

 

UPDATE at 7:45 a.m.:
Maui Police Department officials have identified the tourist who drowned in waters off Kaanapali on Sunday as Ronald Saubers, 55, of Wichita, Kansas.

In a statement, police officials said Saubers was found floating face down near an area known as Black Rock. First responders attempted life saving measures, but police say Saubers was pronounced dead at the scene.

Results of an autopsy were not immediately released.

ORIGINAL STORY:
A Mother's Day turned tragic for honeymooners vacationing on Maui.

Sources say a man in his 50's drowned while snorkeling at Black Rock in Ka'anapali. 

They say the man was snorkeling on the back side of the rock around noon Sunday when he was overtaken by strong currents.

One eye witness said she and her boyfriend swam to a couple who found the man face down in the water without his snorkeling mask on.

The witness said he had a light pulse by the time she got to him.

She said it took them too long to get him back to shore and they couldn't revive him. 

The exact cause of death is pending until an autopsy has been completed.

The identity of the man has not been confirmed.
