GLENCOE, Ala. (AP) -- Authorities say a lawyer from Anniston is believed to have drowned while diving in Glencoe.
Deputy Coroner Michael Head tells The Gadsden Times 60-year-old Randy Brooks was at Dive Land in Glencoe Sunday to practice diving skills for a trip to Mexico.
Dive Land owner John Valdez Jr. says he was getting ready to leave around 2 p.m. and went to check on Brooks.
Head says Valdez found Brooks sitting on a rock in six feet of water. He was wearing a weight belt, his regulator was out of his mouth and his diving mask was still on.
Brooks had been a certified advanced diver for about 25 years.
Brooks' body was set to be sent to Huntsville Monday for an autopsy. His equipment will be checked for malfunctions.
