Shoreline man dies on deep dive in Lake Huron, Michigan

Wednesday, August 3, 2016

According to the Presque Isle County, Michigan Sheriff's Department, Erik Foreman, 47, from Shoreline, died surfacing from a diving expedition in Lake Huron.

He was part of an expedition led by shipwreck hunter David Trotter, diving to the wreck of the Hydrus, which went down in a massive storm in 1913 off the coast of Presque Isle County in Michigan's northern Lower Peninsula.

AP reports the group was diving to 300 feet but previous reports place the ship at 160 feet.

Foreman was heading to the surface when his fellow divers noticed he was in trouble and tried to help him. An autopsy will determine cause of death.

According to MLive, "His death is the second diving death in Lake Huron in the last two weeks. The body of a Detroit man was recovered from the lake after her failed to surface during a shipwreck-diving trip in late July."

Diving is dangerous, I believe it is the second most dangerous occupation, the most dangerous being a lineman.
