Man pulled from waters off Portlock dies


Honolulu firefighters, lifeguards, and paramedics pulled a swimmer from Spitting Cave this afternoon.

The man has died.

Witnesses say the man had trouble getting out of the water just before 5:00 p.m.

Lifeguards pulled him out of the water and began CPR until an ambulance arrived to take him to Queens Medical Center.

Spitting Cave is off of Portlock in East Honolulu. It’s an area where thrill seekers often jump off the cliff into the water.
