‘Vacationer drowns off Lauderdale-by-the-Sea

LAUDERDALE-BY-THE-SEA – A vacationer from Pennsylvania who was scuba diving with her husband drowned accidentally, a Broward Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman said today.

Mary Darnley, 58, had received her scuba divers’ certification in February, according to the spokeswoman, Veda Coleman-Wright.

‘On Saturday morning, Darnley and her husband went scuba diving.

“As her husband was on his way back up, he thought she was behind him,” Coleman-Wright said. “She was found floating in the water by other divers.”

The divers brought her back to shore, at the 4100 block of El Mar Drive, and tried to resuscitate her, but to no avail, Coleman-Wright said. Paramedics took her to Holy Cross Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.’
