Olympia, Kent men die scuba diving off B.C.

VICTORIA, British Columbia -- Two scuba divers who died Friday near Nanaimo, British Columbia, have been identified by the BC Coroners Service as 60-year-old Robert Scott Young of Olympia and 38-year-old Harold John Burkholder of Kent.
The service said they were attempting a deep technical dive in an area known as "the wall" at Snake Island, just east of Nanaimo Harbour.
Scott returned to the surface but collapsed and could not be resuscitated. Burkholder did surface. His body was found Sunday by a commercial diver at a depth of about 250 feet.
The diver was assisting the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, which is investigating what went wrong.
