Exclamation Why I don't Kitesurf

Man dies after kite surfing accident off Kauai

A 50-year-old Kalaheo man was pronounced dead at Wilcox Hospital Saturday night after nearly drowning at Gillins Beach, just east of Punahoa Pt. near Mahaulepu Beach in Po'ipu, Kaua'i.

According to a preliminary report, Irving Corbett had been kite surfing at the south shore spot , said Kaua'i County spokeswoman Mary Daubert.

Someone called police dispatch at 4:01 p.m. Saturday to report that Corbett was lying on the beach unresponsive, but breathing.

Rescue specialists from the Lihu'e fire station who were in Po'ipu on another rescue call left that scene and responded to Gillins Beach. When they arrived, the rescue specialists took over performing CPR from bystanders.

Then medics took over and continued with CPR while en route to Wilcox Hospital.

Corbett was pronounced dead at the hospital.
