Maui man apparently drowns at beach

HONOLULU (AP) - Authorities say a 59-year-old Kahului man has died in an apparent drowning in Kihei.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports that Stephen King was found floating face down Sunday afternoon about 5 yards offshore at Kamaole Beach Park.

Maui police say responders performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation after pulling King from the water. But they were unable to revive him, and King was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say an autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death.
