    BREAKING NEWS: Tourist drowns at Outhouse Beach | Pacific Daily News | guampdn.com

    Very little information on this yet, but a diver was spotted in trouble on the surface...a bystander swam out from the beach, brought him back, and was assisted by another in performing CRP/Mouth to Mouth until authorities arrived. Victim (a male Japanese tourist, reportedly 29 years old) was pronouced dead at the hospital a short while later. This beach is frequently used for intro diving or Open Water courses, but there has been no information made public about the qualifications of the diver. I wasn't involved in this, so I wouldn't have any further information.
