The incident took place on June 18 at around 10:00 a.m.

In detail, the article mentioned a commercial dive boat reported a 40-year-old woman found foaming at the mouth; after she surfaced from a dive on the west side of the island.

In the second incident, a 40-year-old man also was discovered unresponsive with blood-shot eyes after having surfaced.
