    Palmdale Diver Dies Off Palos Verdes Peninsula Coast

    December 12, 2010 | 6:01 pm

    A Palmdale man died Sunday afternoon after failing to surface from a recreational dive off the coast of the Palos Verdes Peninsula, U.S. Coast Guard officials said.

    The victim was diving in the Flat Rock area 100 yards off the coast from a private boat with two friends when he failed to surface, said Capt. Abby Balderas with the L.A. County Lifeguards in Redondo. Redondo Beach Harbor Patrol and L.A. Country Lifeguards launched a search and found the unresponsive diver about noon.

    A Coast Guard helicopter took the diver and a Los Angeles County paramedic to a hyperbaric chamber at Two Harbors, Catalina Island, where the diver was declared dead sometime after 1 p.m., said U.S. Coast Guard Lt. Ana Thorsson.

    The L.A. County coroner’s office identified the victim as 58-year old Steven Dinsdale of Palmdale.

    “The conditions were perfect for diving and lots of people were out there,” said Balderas. “It was just an unfortunate dive accident.”

    A diver who stopped breathing in the ocean off Palos Verdes Estates died after being flown to Catalina Island for emergency treatment.

    Steven Dinsdale, 58, of Palmdale failed to surface from a dive Sunday near Flat Rock, on the northwestern side of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. The Redondo Beach Harbor Patrol began searching for him, and the Coast Guard sent a boat crew.

    Dinsdale was found unconscious in the water and rushed to nearby Redondo Beach King Harbor. There, he was loaded into a Coast Guard helicopter for the 30-mile flight to Two Harbors, where he died while undergoing emergency treatment.
