Man dies snorkeling

An Atlanta, Georgia man died while snorkeling offshore of Key Largo Sunday.

The 39 year old victim was on a snorkeling trip on board the vessel Sundowner III at White Banks Reef. Just after 1 p.m., he was in the water when he yelled for help. Crewmembers on the boat jumped into the water and pulled  him on board the boat. He was unresponsive and not breathing so they began performing CPR.

He was brought back to shore and then transported to Mariner’s Hospital where he was pronounced dead. Detectives are withholding his name from release until they can notify his next of kin.
