KEWALO BASIN, HAWAII (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Two people were injured in an apparent diving accident at Kewalo Basin on Sunday morning.

Around 8 a.m., a 35 year-old man from Washington state was found unresponsive during a scuba diving trip with a tour company. Those with him told paramedics that they had found him not breathing underwater.

Honolulu Emergency Medical Services took over after bystanders tried to perform CPR, and the man was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

Another 42-year-old man was also hospitalized after trying to rescue the 35-year-old before EMS came. He suffered injuries from his quick descent into the ocean, and was taken to the hospital in serious condition.
