Hawai‘i Island police are investigating a possible drowning involving a 66-year old man from Utah that occurred on Wednesday, November, 22, 2023, near the Kailua Pier in Kailua-Kona.
Shortly before 9:30 p.m. on November 22, officers were assigned to a coroner’s inquest at the Kona Community Hospital. Upon contacting medical staff on duty, they were informed that the victim, Michael Green of South Sandy, Utah, had been involved in a diving incident earlier that day.
Through further investigation, it was learned that Green was participating in a guided diving tour offshore of the Kailua Pier when he became unresponsive around 11 a.m. He was taken ashore and responding Hawai‘i Fire Department medics initiated cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on Green. Medics transported Green to the Kona Community Hospital, where he died at 9:04 p.m. that evening.
Police initiated a coroner’s inquest investigation, including an autopsy, to determine the exact cause of death. No foul play is suspected at this time.
