FORT BRAGG, California (AP) - Authorities say a man died while diving in a cove at Russian Gulch State Park in Northern California. It is the second diving-related death in a week along the Mendocino coast.

The Press Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/1suz920 ) that the name of the 57-year-old man was not available Monday. Mendocino Fire Chief Ed O’Brien says he doesn’t know where the man lived, but he was not a local resident.

O’Brien says the man went to the beach with a group of people but was alone in the water. He says the ocean was calm at that time.

Authorities say another diver found the man found floating face down. O’Brien says divers pulled him to shore and performed CPR until emergency personnel arrived, but the man could not be revived.
