Scuba diver missing in Canyon Ferry Lake
HELENA, Mont. (AP) — A scuba diver is missing in Canyon Ferry Lake east of Helena after an equipment malfunction.
Lewis and Clark County Sheriff’s Capt. Kevin Wright tells the Independent Record that two divers were in the water Monday afternoon near Yacht Basin when one had an issue with equipment at about 1:30 p.m. The other diver tried but was unable to help.
Wright says the second diver was pulled from the water and was initially reported to be having trouble breathing. That person appeared to be breathing normally in the ambulance and was taken to the hospital.
Officials did not release any identifying information about the divers.
Emergency responders from four agencies were participating in the search.
