KETCHIKAN (AP) -- A professional diver from Craig died after he apparently got trapped in the outflow pipe from a power station pond south of Ketchikan, according to Alaska State Troopers.

The body of Craig E. Sempert, 44, was recovered from the outflow pipe after his wife reported Friday afternoon that he hadn't come back from the dive.

Sempert, who owned Craig's Dive Shop in Craig, was diving in the area for a survey by Cape Fox Corp.
