HAGATNA, GUAM – A Japanese tourist has drowned in Guam, the fourth water-related death there in the last week.
Pacific Daily News reports that the 47-year-old man, who wasn’t identified, was pronounced dead Thursday after being pulled from the waters near Ypao Beach.
A windsurfer pulled the middle-aged man, who had been snorkeling, out of the water near the Pacific Islands Club buoy line.
Ypao Beach lifeguard Michael Benito told reporters that he and other lifeguards attempted to save the man, who had a faint pulse when he was pulled from the water.
The lifeguard said that he initiated rescue breathing but was unable to resuscitate the man.
