This information is from family and friends of the victim. My son was one of his friends, but not present when this happened.

On Saturday, June 20, 2009, a 28 Year old, experienced SCUBA diver from Torrance CA died while attempting to retrieve an anchored dive float in about 20 feet of water. He was healthy and physically fit.

He had been SCUBA Diving with friends and family, and returned to the water to retrieve their float without his SCUBA gear, but wearing a weight belt due to his wetsuit.

When he was not seen for a few minutes, a fellow diver went to look for him, and found him under water. He was brought to shore where efforts to revive him for over an hour were ultimately unsuccessful.

As you can imagine, his family and friends are devastated. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
