BAHIA HONDA STATE PARK (AP) -- Law enforcement officials say four divers died this week in separate incidents the Florida Keys, including three on the first day of the popular lobster mini-season.

Authorities say an off-duty fire rescue chief from nearby Marathon found the body of James Dobson while diving for Florida spiny lobster yesterday. Dobson, of Loxahatchee, had been diving Monday near a bridge at Bahia Honda State Park.

The search for Dobson was called off Tuesday. The other two dive-related deaths were apparently unrelated. Both victims were taken to Lower Keys Medical Center, where they died yesterday.

A fourth man, 58-year-old Robert Neville Moore died after experiencing a medical emergency yesterday while scuba diving with his wife.
