    SAN DIEGO: Diver dies in scuba accident

    A diver named Crazy Ivan sent this to me.

    This story sounds similar to the story that I was told on opening night, but with a different outcome.

    Forgive the author when he states “respirator” instead of “regulator.”

    SAN DIEGO – A scuba diver who somehow got separated from his underwater breathing equipment during an outing off the coast of Point Loma today was found dead an hour later about 65 feet below the surface.

    The 26-year-old man was diving from a charter boat with five other people in the ocean west of Sunset Cliffs when he went missing about 12:30 p.m., city lifeguard Lt. Andy Lerum said.

    Lifeguard divers searched the sea in the area and found the man shortly after 1:30 p.m., Lerum said.

    They brought the diver, who had no vital signs and was missing his scuba tank and respirator, to the surface and performed CPR while transporting him to the city’s lifeguard headquarters on Mission Bay.

    After the personnel got the man to the Quivira Basin station, city paramedics took over the ultimately futile attempts to resuscitate him, Lerum said.

    The man, whose name was not immediately available, was pronounced dead on a dock at the lifeguard facility.

    The original story can be found here.
