Man Who Died After Diving in Straits of Mackinac Identified

We’re learning more details about a diver’s death, which started as an emergency in the Straits of Mackinac.

The Cheboygan County Sheriff’s Office says two divers were checking out the wreck of the SS Cedarville Sunday.

One diver noticed the other struggling and helped him to the boat.

The sheriff’s office says that man was Jessie Tabor from Owosso.

He died at the hospital.

They say the autopsy is done, but it could be weeks before the exact cause of death is figured out.

Tabor’s dive equipment will be looked at in the next week or two.

At this point, the sheriff says it appears to be a tragic diving accident.
