MISSING DIVER RESCUED BY COAST GUARD
Near Cape Flattery, Washington, on Tuesday the 19th of August, a Coast Guard Motor Life Boat located and rescued a diver who had been reported missing. The diver had been separated from his friend after he didn’t resurface after the agreed upon amount of dive time. The thick fog that morning limited visibility, and so the Coast Guard were alerted.
Along with the Motor Life Boat, a Dolphin helicopter crew was also launched from Port Angeles. The diver was found waving to the Life Boat, and was taken to Station Neah Bay, where he was in good condition. He was taken to the hospital for further medical evaluation. Chief Petty Officer Raymond Anderson thanked his crew, the diver, and his friend for their proficiency, which allowed the diver to be found safely.
