A 61-year-old Goldfield, Iowa man died at Lower Keys Medical Center on Stock Island Friday following a snorkeling incident near Sand Key Lighthouse off Key West.
Deputies say Paul Lynn Russell was snorkeling from a commercial Fury Water Adventures boat at approximately 2 p.m. when he required assistance and was helped back to the vessel.
The crew and other boat customers began CPR. The U.S. Coast Guard brought Russell ashore.
Foul play does not appear to be a factor in the investigation, deputies say.
Autopsy results are pending.
