 JUPITER(WFLX)---The Palm Beach Sheriff's Office says a diver has died after collapsing.

About 1:10p.m. Thursday, PBCFR received a call that 60-year-old Frank Jaffe of Jupiter had come up from diving, gotten into a boat, and suddenly felt ill off Jupiter Inlet.

He had taken two dives, one 90 feet and another 85 feet. He was an experienced diver and was apparently catching lobster. An EMT on board started to do CPR as they returned to Seasport Marina in Jupiter to transport him to the hospital.

Jaffe later died at Jupiter Medical Center. At this time, the cause of death is not known.
