Diver Rescued During Training Exercise

July 11, 2014, 2:00 PM by Brady Mallory

Diver Rescued During Training Exercise
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Minnehaha County Emergency Management officials said a diver is in the hospital after being pulled from the water on Thursday.  The 43-year-old man is in stable condition, but will be sedated for the next 24 hours.  Emergency Manager Lynn DeYoung said the volunteer was part of a training exercise with a team of 11 divers. 

They were practicing rescues with dummies at Family Park.  Though DeYoung would not go into detail about what exactly happened, he said the diver, "developed some sort of problem," while under water.  The diver tugged on the rope, letting the others know something was wrong.  DeYoung said he was under water for about two minutes, however he did not say if he was without oxygen.  Right now they are trying to figure out what exactly happened. 

DeYoung said the diver's family is still being notified, so his name is not being released.  We will have more details tonight on KELOLAND News.
