Scuba diver hospitalized after equipment failure in Lake Michigan

SAUGATUCK (WKZO) -- A scuba diver is recovering at a Grand Rapids hospital after being rescued on Lake Michigan when his equipment failed.

The diver was roughly 100 feet underwater when a regulator responsible for de-pressurizing breathable gas failed. He was diving with another person off the coast of Saugatuck on Saturday, investigating a sunken tugboat.

According to the U.S. Coast Guard, CPR efforts helped the man to start breathing once on the dive boat, but he never regained consciousness before being put into an ambulance.
