From the Ventura County Star dateline 10/24/05;

An unidentified diver was flown to St. John's Pleasant Valley Hospital in Camarillo Sunday, after a diving accident off Santa Rosa Island, a Coast Guard official said.

The incident took place around 11:15 a.m. when a man dove off of a vessel and resurfaced with a blue face, said Petty Officer Leslie Hearn.

The man, who was vacationing in the area, was in stable condition Sunday evening, and his prognosis is excellent, Hearn said.

He was undergoing treatment in a hyperbaric chamber before being transferred to an intensive care unit, Hearn said.

Coast Guard members responding to the call for help, put the man on oxygen. A helicopter carried him to the Camarillo Airport before he was taken to the hospital, Hearn said.
