Snorkeling death, Key Largo

Key Largo – A Michigan man died while on a snorkeling trip offshore of Key Largo Tuesday.

65 year old Gregory Hancock of Davison, Michigan was on board the Snorkel Express charter boat out of Pennekamp State Park when the incident took place. According to witnesses, he had been snorkeling for about a half an hour when he climbed up the ladder of the boat and sat down. The boat’s mate asked him how he was and he collapsed on the deck.

On board the boat was a firefighter, paramedic and a nurse who took charge of performing CPR as the boat headed back to the dock. They were met by an ambulance, but the victim was pronounced dead.

An autopsy will be done to determine the cause of his death.
