DUNEDIN – Pinellas County Sheriff’s deputies kept an 81-year-old Palm Harbor man alive by performing CPR until Dunedin Fire Rescue arrived on scene.

Deputies responded to a call just after 1 p.m. Tuesday, May 6, about a man floating face down in the water about 100 yards from shore in the southern swim area just outside of Hurricane Pass on Honeymoon Island Beach.

When patrol deputy Kimon Koungras and Marine Unit deputy Charles Meehan arrived on scene, citizens had already pulled the man to shore. The deputies alternated giving the man CPR until first responders could arrive.

Morina was transported to Mease Dunedin Hospital and remains in critical condition.

According to deputies, Morina told his wife he was going to go for a quick swim. She told them that he’d been gone a while when she noticed some commotion on the beach and realized something had happened to her husband.

Cpl. Koungras, 33, has worked for the sheriff’s office since Jan. 28, 2002, Meehan, 45, has been employed since March 19, 2007.
