JUPITER, Fla. - The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office was Johnny-on-the-spot Wednesday morning when several divers became separated from their commercial dive boat.

The sheriff's office marine and aviation units teamed up to help rescue the group.

A total of seven divers were separated.

Two divers were found immediately and taken to a marina, the sheriff's office said.

The aviation unit spotted five other divers a few miles away and directed the marine unit to them, according to the sheriff's office.

The dive boat arrived a short time later and reunited with the group.
