KEY LARGO, Fla. (AP) - A 58-year-old Texas man died in Florida while scuba diving in the Atlantic Ocean.

Monroe County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Becky Herrin says Oswald Regueira of Amarillo, Texas, was on his first dive of the day Sunday when he surfaced in distress.

The boat’s captain told authorities all the other divers from the commercial dive boat Tropical Legend were recalled to the vessel and Regueira was pulled on board.

Herrin says CPR was performed as the boat traveled to shore, where the man was taken to a hospital, where he was declared dead.

An investigation continues.
