The Monterey County Coroner’s Office has completed the postmortem examination into the drowning deaths of Carson teens in the Monterey Bay Saturday.

The specific cause of their deaths will be released when the investigation is complete says officials.

The teens were scuba diving with other Carson High students in Monterey Bay, California. 19 divers went down into the water for the dive, but only 17 came back up.

After what has now been discovered to be a more than 2 hour search, the two divers were found at the bottom of the sea floor.

Carson school district says their tanks were empty. Both were in cardiac arrest. Paramedics administered CPR all the way to the hospital, but neither could be resuscitated.

Students say they're not blaming anyone for what happened. Carson school district says that an official at the scene of the accident believes it to be an accident but no official results have been released.
