An Elk Grove man, Tyler Dutton, died Sunday after being stricken while diving off Pacific Grove.
The Monterey County Coroner's Office said Dutton, 48, was an experienced scuba diver who experienced problems while ascending after a 32-minute dive in water 53 feet deep. From about 15 feet, he ascended ahead of his group and was thrashing in the water when the others surfaced, said coroner's investigator Thomas Jenkins.
Dutton, who had been diving with three friends from a private boat, was pronounced dead in the emergency room at Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula.
An autopsy was performed Monday but results were not available.
