The Hawaii Fire Department (HFD) along with the Hawaii Police Department (HPD) responded to check on the welfare of a male party laying down at a bus stop on Highway 11 (Mamalahoa Highway) in Kealakekua, South Kona Monday afternoon (October 19th).
The initial call came in 2:36 pm Monday afternoon and HFD crews from the Captain Cook Fire Station and HPD officers from the Kona Patrol responded to the scene located at the 81-6600 block of Mamalahoa Highway in Kealakekua.
Upon the arrival of emergency crews, reports came in from bystanders reporting a person (described as a male in his 40s) was reported to be laying down at a bus stop off of Mamalahoa Highway in Kealakekua town. Bystanders requested emergency crews to check on the welfare of the male party.
Once emergency crews arrived at the scene, HFD Medics found the male party and began conducting a welfare check. However, upon further investigation, they determined the male was unresponsive and immediately began life-saving measures. Medics then transported the male to the Kona Community Hospital in extremely critical condition, where at this time, his condition remains unknown.
HPD continues to investigate the incident.
