A 27-year-OLD known epileptic of Yaro Village on Malolo Island in the Mamanuca Group was found dead underwater on Wednesday morning.

The man had been spear fishing with four others.

"The men searched and found his motionless body under the surface," Ms Ragigia said.

"They reeled him in with a rope that was tied to his body but were unsuccessful in trying to revive him."

Ms Ragigia said police were informed the victim was a known epileptic.
