Geoduck diver found unconscious, airlifted to Harborview

PORT ANGELES (AP) — The Clallam County sheriff’s office says a commercial diver found unconscious 50 feet below the surface of the water off Washington’s Dungeness Spit has been airlifted to a Seattle hospital.

Sgt. Lyman Moores said 24-year-old Samuel Silverstein of Bremerton was reported in critical condition on life support Tuesday at Harborview Medical Center.

Moores says Silverstein and another man had been diving for geoduck clams.

The second man brought Silverstein to the surface. He was taken on board a state Department of Natural Resources boat that responded to the diving boat’s call for help. Moores says CPR was started immediately.
