SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) - Officials say two abalone divers died over the weekend in separate incidents at popular diving locations along the northern Sonoma Coast.

Supervising State Park Ranger Jeremy Stinson says divers found a 57-year-old Oakland man unresponsive in the water Sunday, brought him to shore and administered CPR, but the man could not be revived. Sonoma County coroner's officials identified him on Monday as Alan Rosenlicht.

Stinson tells The Press Democrat of Santa Rosa that the divers found the man after noticing an unattended floatation device on the northern end of Fort Ross State Park.

Rosenlicht's death came a day after State Park lifeguards found a 67-year-old San Francisco man floating in the water in Gerstle Cove in Salt Point State Park. That man was identified on Monday as Clyde Thompson.
