PALM BEACH — Broken Bay Water Police and a Rescue Helicopter were called to Palm Beach this morning at around 8:30am where a scuba diver was pulled unconscious from the water.

A doctor and paramedic were lowered onto the boat, approximately 10 kilometers off shore, but were unable to revive the man. He was pronounced dead on the scene.

A second diver who was assisting the man was also airlifted to The Prince of Wales Hospital. He is in a stable condition.

Police will question those on the boat once it returns to shore later in the day.
