A 31-year-old man from California who died Sunday at Waimea Falls was not trying to rescue a female swimmer.

After further investigation, Honolulu Police say statements from witnesses indicate that Kris Gungon was trying to swim out of the waterfall when he apparently drowned.

Rescue crews searched the water and found Gungon’s body about an hour later under water.

An autopsy will be conducted to determine the exact cause of death.
