A Marine died Saturday after a boat capsized near the Marine base in Kaneohe, Hawaii.

KHNL reports the active-duty Marine was fishing with two other men when their 17-foot boat was overturned by a rogue wave.

Two of the men swam to shore for help. After hours of searching, the victim was found unconscious 30 feet underwater and later declared dead.

The U.S. Marine Corps told outlets it would not release the man's name until his next of kin is notified.
