Woman dies after scuba diving off Florida's Atlantic coast


JUPITER, Fla. (AP) -- A woman has died after scuba diving off Florida's Atlantic coast.

Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office spokesman Deputy Eric Davis said in a Palm Beach Post report that the woman was diving Saturday morning with a crew from the Jupiter Dive Center when she began to suffer a complication.

Davis said a sheriff's office marine unit and a private vessel responded to the dive crew's distress call.

The woman was rushed to shore. She was pronounced dead at a hospital. Her name has not been released.

The Palm Beach County Medical Examiner's Office will determine the cause of death.
