But one day in, things took a somber turn on Sunday.

]]>Muhney’s Twitter account:

Life is fragile. Say prayers for “Mike” and his wife & daughters. I pulled him out of the ocean an hour ago and administered CPR… I kept his heart and breathing going for about 15 mins until the paramedics showed up. He’s in good hands now and we’re hoping 4 the best.

He passed away. I did everything I could. Please get as many people as possible to pray for his family.
The first tweet mentions a man named “Mike,” but we don’t think it is someone else tweeting about the actor himself, since the tweet mentioned “daughters” and Muhney and wife Jamie have a daughter and a son. We have put in calls to Muhney’s representatives and to the Maui authorities and will keep you posted as more details emerge. UPDATE: Muhney has tweeted since this story broke: I am fine. It was the gentleman I pulled from the water that died. So sad. Tragic loss. Still shaken up. Feel awful for his family.
