Coast Guard Saves Man during Accident

A man in North Carolina has the Coast Guard to thank for rescuing him from a boating accident.

According to the Coast Guard, the 56-year-old man was diving near the coast of North Carolina when he was involved in an accident. The crew of the diving boat, Midnight Express, called for a rescue team to come out. At this time the identity of the victim has not been released to the public.

When the man surfaced from his 110-foot dive, he was complaining of shortness of breath, along with other symptoms. Both a rescue boat was dispatched from Fort Macon and a rescue helicopter from Air Station Elizabeth City. He was later taken to a hospital in Norfolk, Va.
