    Dive accident today at Ginnie Springs. An older diver was found unconscious at the surface today coming out of Devils Eye. CPR was administered until EMS arrived but he never regained consciousness.

    Don't know many details but sad day.

    Not a lot of details. Here's what I know. They were at the end of the dive. Had completed the deco stop. After that, got separated from his buddy. He was found floating in the river. No obvious equipment failure but that's just speculation at this time.

    Can anyone confirm this? I have not seen any comments on CDF or TDS.

    Thanks.

    yes, no postings on other forums but an accident occurred. I'm sure details will be forthcoming as Ginnie is fairly busy this time of year.

    I spoke with someone who got information from an individual who was on site, so I can confirm it. I have no knowledge of if family has been notified, so I'll withhold any further posting of the name or other information. Some postings on other forums already have incorrect information.

    How odd that this has not made any of the news services.

    Given the ability of the media to contort the facts, that may be a blessing.

    I haven't found anything anywhere. Kind of strange,
