California man drowns on honeymoon in Hawaii, couple's belongings stolen during resuscitation efforts

A newly-married California man drowned while snorkeling on his honeymoon in Hawaii, and when bystanders attempted to resuscitate him, thieves took the newlyweds’ belongings and rental car.

Steven Phan, 49, and his wife Brittany were snorkeling off the shore of Electric Beach on June 1 when he vanished beneath the water, according to the New York Post.

Phan’s body was quickly pulled to shore by a spear fisherman and bystanders began CPR until first responders arrived.

He was transported to a hospital where he later died, according to KHON.

The Phans, who were wed on March 20, were only married for about three months when he drowned.
