Man Drowns During Cave Dive

One Texas man is dead after a cave diving accident in Jackson County.

Dan Weyent and Richard Mork were cave diving at the Blue Springs Recreational Park in Marianna, Florida in an area called the Rabbit's Hole.

Weyent says he noticed Mork swimming erratically and swam over to check him out. Weyent discovered that Mork's respirator was out of his mouth and he was unresponsive.

Members of the Jackson County Sheriff's Office Dive Team recovered Mork's body from the scene.

An autopsy will be be performed to determine the exact cause of death.
