HONOLULU, Hawaii October 1 2020
A security officer attacked and brutally beaten and left fighting for his life has died.
John Kanui was working as a security officer when he was beaten at the Kona Seaside Hotel two years ago.
Kanui’s family said that after the attack, that he was transferred to a care facility on the mainland where he passed away from his injuries.
In September 2018, the 65-year-old responded to a noise complaint when three people beat him. He was transported to the mainland for a brain injury and broken neck, which left him paralyzed.
All three attackers were convicted last year and are currently behind bars.
His family is now making arrangements to bring Kanui home.
