03/29/2018: "USCG Locates Lost Divers, Both OK"


Two divers were reported missing Thursday to Coast Guard Sector Puget Sound at 1:35 p.m., by the father and grandfather of the divers and operator of the dive boat, who is from Anacortes, after the divers didn’t surface at the planned location of Colville Island, but ended up at Point Coville on Lopez Island.

A Coast Guard aircrew located a father and son diving pair after the divers became separated from their dive boat while diving near the San Juan Islands, Thursday.

The father and son divers, ages 46 and 18 respectively and from Forest Grove, Oregon, were located safe on land and were transported back to their dive boat and reunited with family with no reported injuries by a Coast Guard Station Bellingham boat crew aboard a 45-foot Response Boat-Medium.

The Station Bellingham boat crew was diverted and an aircrew aboard an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter from Air Station Port Angeles was launched at 1:45 p.m. The aircrew located the divers at Point Colville at 2:24 p.m.

The divers swam to the Coast Guard RB-M and the boat crew helped them climb aboard the boat and transported them back to their boat.
