UNALASKA (AP) -- A 42-year-old man died this week while on a diving job in Unalaska.
Public Safety officials said it's unclear what caused the death of Craig Magone. They're hoping an autopsy will solve the mystery.
Officers were called to the offshore systems dock about 4:40 p.m. Thursday.
Public Safety Lt. John Lucking said officers and workers with Magone Marine were unable to resuscitate Magone, the brother of company owner Dan Magone. Company spokesman Dick Shacher said Craig Magone was preparing to conduct an underwater inspection of the fishing vessel Sea Fisher.
Magone had just entered the water when he started thrashing about, Lucking said. He went underwater briefly before fellow workers brought him ashore.
The ambulance arrived within five minutes of getting the call, according to Lucking. He said Magone was unconscious when medics arrived and transported him to the local clinic.
Lucking said resuscitation efforts continued for about an hour.
Shacher said Craig Magone traveled back and forth between Unalaska and Soldotna, and leaves a wife and three children.
