Honolulu, HI

A U.S. Marine is dead after the boat he was in capsized outside of the Kaneohe Marine Corps Base in Hawaii.

The 17-foot boat overturned with three men onboard early Saturday morning.  Only two of the men were able to swim to shore and notify authorities.

Honolulu Fire Department responded and began the search for the man. The Coast Guard and military personnel later aided them.

Rescue crews found the man several hours later underwater and unconscious. He was declared dead a short time later.

Officials with the Marine Corps have not released the name of the victim till his next of kin is notified.

At this time it is not clear why the men were out on the water so early in the morning.
