Woman collapses after diving

An 18 year old woman from the United Kingdom collapsed after a dive Wednesday.

18 year old Eva Prendergast had been diving at 110 feet. She was on a dive trip on the Rainbow Reef dive boat. She reportedly surfaced and was back on board the boat when she complained of a headache. She then collapsed and was unconscious. She was put on oxygen and transported to shore where Deputy Dave Campbell met the boat at Key Largo Homeowners Park on Marina Avenue.

Prendergast was taken to Mariner's Hospital where she was reported to be in and out of consciousness. She was then airlifted to South Miami Hospital for treatment.
