Minn. Man Dies During Shipwreck Dive At Isle Royale Park

A 55-year-old man has died while scuba diving to a shipwreck at Isle Royale National Park in Lake Superior. Park officials say Lloyd W. Krohn of Wyoming, Minn., was among three divers planning to explore a Canadian cargo vessel called the Kamloops, which sank in 1927. Shortly after reaching their target depth of about 200 feet, the other divers noticed that Krohn was having trouble.
