Bridgeport Teen Dies In Scuba Diving Accident

A 16 year old Bridgeport teenager has died in a scuba diving accident on Skaneateles Lake.

Cayuga County Sheriffs Deputies say Brandon Finch was diving with two other adults in about 60 feet of water when Finch quickly tried to resurface, but he became unresponsive before hitting the surface. The two other divers with him at the time got him out of the water and began CPR until ambulance crews arrived, but he was pronounced dead at a Cortland Hospital.

Sheriffs Deputies say Finch was certified to dive in that depth and the two other adult divers had years of experience.

There's no word on the cause of death, and an autopsy is now underway.
