SAUGATUCK, Mich.- A man had to be rescued Saturday morning after he stopped breathing during a dive operation on Lake Michigan.

According to the U.S. Coast Guard, a diver had been diving in about 100 ft. of water in Lake Michigan when something went wrong with the diver’s air regulator. His diving partner tried to assist him, but the time they resurfaced the diver had stopped breathing.

A 25-foot Coast Guard boat from Holland arrived on scene and took the diver to shore and then was transferred by EMS to Spectrum Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids.

The condition of the man right now is unknown.
