Guam - A 50-year-old Chamorro man was pronounced dead after the boat he was on capsized outside of the Hagatna Marina. At 11 this morning Guam Fire Department rescue units who were participating in training responded to the incident.

According to Guam Police Chief Fred Bordallo three individuals were aboard the boat at the time it turned over, as he told KUAM News, "One is of course was transported to Naval Hospital, and is pretty much in serious condition and the other of course is right now being treated by the medic and the other one is okay."

According to GPD spokesperson Office A.J. Balajadia, the three men were attempting to exit the mouth of the basin in a Livingston double-hulled boat when it was struck by a large wave, causing it to flip backwards tossing all three occupants into the water. It was reported that none of the three men were wearing life vests at the time.

While two of the occupants were pulled from the water by a person who was parasailing, the third was not accounted for and was located by GFD's Rescue Unit face down and unresponsive. CPR was administered en route to Naval Hospital in Agana Heights where he was pronounced dead.

His name is being with held pending notification of next of kin.
