Diver Hospitalized

Recreational diver and Coast Guardsman Wes Clemons apparently came up too fast on his dive in East Bay and suffered from what's commonly called "the bends."

Clemons was diving with friends. They took Clemons to the docks at Captain Anderson's Marina where he was loaded into an ambulance and taken to Bay Medical-Sacred Heart.

From there Life-Flight took him by helicopter to Tallahassee for treatment.

We're told he should make a full recovery.
