A man whose body firefighters brought to shore before paramedics pronounced his death at 9:45 p.m has been confirmed as 45-year-old  Dean Hūhane,45, of Kaneohe.

A medical examiner’s office in Hawaii  said the victim was apparently drowned after his body was found in Laniakea Beach Tuesday 20, Hawaii Star Advertiser reports.

Autopsies will be conducted to determine cause of his death, it said.

His older brother Tokolahi Hūhane told Kaniva News  family members will travel from Tonga to Hawaii to attend Dean’s funeral this week.

The deceased came from Kahoua in Tongatapu.

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
