Diver in distress at wreckage of "Yukon" off Mission Beach

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Lifeguards have rescued a diver in distress Saturday at the wreck of the Canadian destroyer Yukon, about a mile off the coast of Mission Beach.

The call came in just after 5 p.m. from the commercial sport diving boat "Humboldt."

Lifeguards say a 42-year-old woman surfaced unconscious, and was suffering symptoms related to decompression.

She was taken to lifeguard headquarters in Quivera Basin, then to the hyperbaric chamber at UCSD Medical Center. No word on her condition at this hour.
