LA Man Died Sunday Searching Andrea Doria Wreckage

EAST HAMPTON, N.Y. (AP) — New York authorities say a Pennsylvania scuba diver has died after surfacing from a shipwreck 60 miles southeast of Long Island’s Montauk. It’s the second death connected to the same dive boat in the last week.

A Los Angeles man died Sunday.

East Hampton police Chief Eddie Ecker tells Newsday that 64-year-old Timothy Barrow, of Reading, Pa., went into cardiac arrest Thursday. He says he died despite attempts by the crew of the John Jack dive boat to administer CPR.

On Sunday, 27-year-old Michael LaPrade, of Los Angeles, was one of three divers descending to the wreck of the Andrea Doria off Nantucket when he apparently let go of a rope and disappeared. His body was found about three hours later and the death remains under investigation.

The John Jack is temporarily based in Montauk.
