Man dies after dive near Kingston

A man died Wednesday afternoon shortly after going diving near Kingston, North Kitsap Fire and Rescue officials said.

He had been diving with others near the Point Julia area on the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribal Reservation, breathing surface-supplied air from a compressor on the boat, rather than using a scuba tank, a fire and rescue spokeswoman said. After more than an hour underwater, the man gestured to a companion that he wanted to resurface. They did, and he told others on the boat he didn’t feel well. As he was taking off his gear, he passed out in the boat, said Michele Laboda, the spokeswoman.

Fire crews spent 40 minutes but were not able to revive the man.

How deep he’d been diving and how many companions were with him are not yet known. The coroner’s office has not yet released the man’s name and cause of death.

More details will be added to this post as they become available.
