Two Die in Separate Diving Incidents in Florida Keys

TAVERNIER, Fla. (AP) -- Deputies say a 64-year-old Tennessee woman and a 66-year-old southwest Florida man died in separate diving incidents in the Florida Keys over the weekend.
The Monroe County Sheriff's Office says Anne and Robert Morey of Monterey, Tenn., were planning to dive in a rock quarry in Tavernier Sunday afternoon.
Deputies say Robert Morey told his wife to go ahead while he got more weights. He says he found her not breathing about 20 minutes later in water 40 feet deep. She was pronounced dead at a hospital.
On Saturday, John and Nancy Dowicki were snorkeling near John Pennekamp State Park. Members of the boat crew say they saw John Dowicki drifting away. They pulled him onto the boat and performed CPR but he was dead on the scene.
