The 50-year-old man was diving off a research boat Saturday afternoon when he was started having symptoms of decompression sickness. At the time, the boat was about 23 miles off the coast.

A person aboard the boat notified watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector Delaware Bay in Philadelphia around 4:45 p.m., and a medium 45-foot response boat from Coast Guard Station Cape May soon arrived on scene.

The diver, whose name was not released, was responsive while being transferred to the Coast Guard boat and taken back shore. He was being treated at a hospital, but further details on his condition were not disclosed.
