Canadian Man from Alberta Drowns off the Kona Coast

A Canadian man apparently drowned Wednesday morning (April 11) in waters off Kailua-Kona.

The victim has been identified as 49-year-old William Savage of Okotoks in the Canadian province of Alberta.

At 11:20 a.m., Kona patrol officers responded to Kona Community Hospital, where they learned that Savage had been part of a scuba diving tour in waters north of Honokōhau.

A large surge reportedly knocked him off some rocks and into the water. When he failed to surface, tour members pulled him onto the boat , began CPR and took him to Honokōhau Harbor. From there, fire/rescue personnel took him to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 10:23 a.m.

An autopsy has been ordered to determine the exact cause of death.
