A crewmember aboard the commercial dive vessel Sea Lion notified Coast Guard Station Manasquan around 8:40 a.m. Sunday that a diver had just left the water and was having difficulty breathing. The man, whose name not immediately released, had been diving near the Manasquan Inlet.

The Coast Guard station dispatched a 47-foot motor life boat crew, which included two emergency medical technicians who boarded the dive vessel to treat the man as he was taken back to the station. The diver was then taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

Officials say the cause of death was not immediately known.
