Waimea girl, 4, drowns in pool

A child drowned at a birthday party held Saturday afternoon in Waimea.

Darci Isoshima, four, of Waimea, was attending a birthday party at Waimea Plantation Cottages, and was swimming in the resort pool.

A young boy pulled her out of the shallow end of the pool, but resuscitation efforts by rescue personnel failed.

On Saturday, Aug. 10, around 5:15 p.m., the Kauai Police Department received a call regarding the apparent drowning.

Isoshima is the third drowning victim this year, and the first in recent memory to drown in a swimming pool. The other two victims drowned in the ocean.

KPD has requested an autopsy to definitively determine the cause of death.
