A 65-year-old tourist from California died Saturday in an apparent shark attack as he swam off the coast of Maui, authorities said.

The unidentified man was swimming about 60 yards off the beach in the Kaanapali Shores area in western Maui. The County of Maui Department of Fire and Public Safety responded to a witness report in the morning with a helicopter and Jet Ski to locate the man and bring him to shore. Rescuers performed CPR, but he was unresponsive and declared dead at the scene
