Coast Guards Rescue Two San Antonio Divers

LNS,

A Coast Guard helicopter was successful in rescuing the two divers from San Antonio who had gone missing in the Gulf of Mexico. The divers had gone missing for more than three hours before they were spotted by the Coast Guard.

In a statement on Sunday, the Coast Guard said that 51-year-old Dennis Garrett and 46-year-old Robert Holms were rescued from the water on Saturday. They were seen more than 6 miles from their last known location.

The men had gone diving around 16 miles off San Jose Island. The captain of the dive boat noticed that the men were more than 40 minutes late and no one could spot them. The captain then radioed the Coast Guard for help.

In the release, Lt. Harry Lehman said that the bright colored flotation devices used by the divers made it easier for the officials to spot them.

Once the divers were rescued, they were brought to the shore. The ambulance crew checked the divers as a precaution.
