WEEKI WACHEE, Florida (AP) - Authorities say a 29-year-old Gainesville man died of an air embolism during a dive at the Weeki Wachee Springs State Park.
Marson Kay was with a group of divers who went into a cavern with several tight rock formations on Saturday. During their ascent, investigators say Kay became disoriented and got stuck in an opening that was too small to swim through.
The medical examiner determined Kay did not drown, but suffered an air embolism.
Hernando County Sheriff's investigators say Kay was a certified diver.
