WAILUKU, Hawaii —

The man who may have drowned while swimming with his wife off Mauai's Kamaole Beach Park was from Washington.

The Maui News (http://is.gd/zF2GDH) reports that police have identified the man who died Tuesday as 49-year-old Glen Burlingame of Vancouver.

Police say the couple was snorkeling 10 to 15 yards offshore at about 10:45 a.m. when the wife turned and saw her husband floating face down in the water. Lt. Jayson Rego of the Criminal Investigation Division says Burlingame's wife swam back to shore with him, where bystanders helped bring him to the beach and began efforts to revive him.

County lifeguards and firefighters arrived and continued CPR efforts but Burlingame died at the scene.
