    The outcome was unknown at publication, but CPR is never a good sign.

    I do know a friend of mine had a 71 year old student who started to act oddly on a swim back to shore. When they went to him in the water he was unresponsive. The diver was put into an induced coma and would be assessed Sunday night/Monday morning. I have no other updates on his condition. I'll share any additional facts that come my way.

    I believe this diver is an instructor. I heard about this incident but don’t have any more details at the moment.

    I was at the Breakwater last weekend. The only incident I am aware of that happened last Saturday was my friend's student. The diver was a student, he was unresponsive, he was in the ICU and put in a medically induced coma. I don't have the current status of the person.

    Two Saturday's before that Deputy Lyke died while diving at the Breakwater. He was an Assistant Instructor.

    I was mistaken, this is a different incident than the one I was thinking of.
