A 46-year-old diver was found unresponsive by members of the Islamorada Coast Guard station after it received a call around 11 a.m. Wednesday of a diver in distress on a commercial charter near Mile Marker 103, Port Largo Canal.

People aboard the boat administered CPR until the Coast Guard arrived and transported the man to the Mariners Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, Sector Key West Coast Guard Lt. Peter Bermont said Wednesday.
