CARMEL, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say two scuba divers have died while diving off the coast of California's Monterey County.
Calfire spokesman Daniel Berlant says emergency crews were sent to Point Lobos State Reserve around 2:45 p.m. Friday where they found lifeguards performing CPR on one of the divers.
Lifeguards and firefighters got in a boat and found the second diver floating just offshore.
CPR was also performed on that person, but both divers were pronounced dead after being taken to a hospital.
The names, additional details about the victims and what killed them have not been released, but authorities say one was a male and one was a female.
The reserve where the divers died is a popular diving area about four miles south of Carmel.
