2 scuba divers die off Monterey County coast

CARMEL, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say two scuba divers have died while diving off the coast of 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 the second diver, but both divers were pronounced dead after being taken to a hospital.

The names or additional details about the victims 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.
