PLANTATION KEY, Fla. (AP) — Authorities have identified a Pennsylvania man who died after diving in the Florida Keys.

The Monroe County Sheriff's Office reports that 52-year-old Christopher Johnson of Camp Hill, was with two friends diving off Plantation Key Thursday when he became unresponsive. His friends performed CRP, and Johnson was later taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Sheriff's detectives are investigating the case. An autopsy will determine the cause of death.

It wasn't immediately known if Johnson was participating in the two-day recreational spiny lobster season. One diver was reported dead during last year's mini season.
