After the body of a Korean tourist was pulled from the waters off Tanguisson on Tuesday, KUAM confirms the male swimmer has died. Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Aurelio Espinola performed the autopsy, but could not release details until authorities first contact the victim's family.

As reported, the unidentified man was snorkeling with a friend inside the reef at Tanguisson Beach earlier this week when he went missing.

Several hours had passed before first responders located his body, and rushed him to Naval Hospital. Unfortunately, he didn't survive.
