(Kauai, HI) -- A woman is dead after she apparently drowned while snorkeling in the waters of Kauai. County officials say the woman was 65-years-old and was visiting Hawaii from Washington state. Authorities say she was snorkeling with another woman and a child Wednesday afternoon when they were pulled into deep water by strong currents of Haena Beach Park. Lifeguards swam out to rescue the trio, but the one woman was unresponsive. She was declared dead at an area hospital. An investigation into the incident is ongoing.
