Police Investigating Death of Tourist Found Floating in Water

Big Island police are investigating the death of a 50-year-old San Francisco man who died Wednesday (June 13) along the Kohala Coast.

Paul S. Tsang was snorkeling in waters off Mauna Lani Beach Club at about 12:35 p.m. when an unidentified person on shore noticed he was floating. An Ogden, Utah, man using a paddle board went to check on Tsang and found him unresponsive.

Tsang was brought to shore, where a nurse from Tucson, Arizona, and Hawaiʻi lifeguard personnel performed cardio-pulmonary resuscitation until Hawaiʻi Fire Department personnel arrived.

Tsang was taken to North Hawaiʻi Community Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 1:39 p.m.

Police are investigating the matter as a coroner’s inquest and have ordered an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death.
