Man who drowned off Kauai is fourth drowning

By Associated Press

LIHUE, Hawaii (AP) A 65-year-old New York man who drowned in waters off Kaui this past weekend is the fourth person to drown off the island so far this year.

Officials previously had said the man who died Saturday was the third person to drown. They now say he actually was the fourth person to drown, and another drowning occurred earlier in the week.

The Garden Island reports that the man who drowned Saturday has been identified as John Nichols.

The Kauai Fire Department says the man was swimming at Lydgate Beach when he apparently got swept away. Lifeguards and firefighters responded and the man was located floating 75 feet off shore.

Medics worked to revive him but he was pronounced dead after arriving at the hospital.
