Missing Teen Diver Found in Boca Raton Inlet, Being Airlifted to Hospital

A 15-year-old boy who went missing in the Atlantic after free diving with friends was found and was being brought to a hospital, officials said.


The Coast Guard says the boy was diving without breathing gear when he lost contact with his friends Saturday off the Boca Raton Inlet.

The Coast Guard launched a search by air and by sea. Petty Officer Jon-Paul Rios says wreck divers volunteered to join the search for the teen.

The teen was later found and was being airlifted to Delray Medical Center in serious condition, officials said.

Two other teenagers from Palm Beach County went missing in July while fishing in the ocean off Jupiter. Their boat was found capsized off Daytona Beach, but the 14-year-old boys were not found in spite of an intense Coast Guard search.
