Weston man, 59, dies while scuba diving


TOWN OF BROCKWAY, Wis. (AP) -- Authorities say a 59-year-old man has died after taking part in scuba diving exercises at a Wisconsin lake where another diver died eight days earlier.

The Jackson County sheriff's office says Kerry Jurica of Weston was participating in exercises Sunday afternoon at Wazee Lake Recreation Area in the Town of Brockway. The sheriff's office says another diver noticed Jurica was having problems with equipment and was unresponsive, and the other diver rescued Jurica.

According to the sheriff's office, Jurica died at a local medical facility. The Leader-Telegram reports no foul play is suspected.

A woman identified as 54-year-old Wendy Fassbender of Lodi died after diving at Wazee Lake on June 27.
