SAN DIEGO — Friends and family Monday mourned a 54-year-old Chula Vista man who died after he lost consciousness in shallow waters while scuba diving off La Jolla Shores Beach.

Lawrence Edward Yates was found floating face down near the south end of La Jolla Shores Beach about 11:45 a.m. Saturday, according to San Diego lifeguards and the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Yates and another diver were completing a short dive in fairly shallow water when Yates was pinned up against a sea wall by the elements, San Diego lifeguard Lt. Nick Lerma said.

“He was unable to extract himself,” Lerma said. ”The other diver attempted to help him, but (Yates) seemed to be unconscious.”

Lifeguards pulled Yates from the water and performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation until paramedics arrived, he said.

Paramedics then rushed Yates to Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla, where he was pronounced dead at 1:45 p.m. Saturday.

    Deputy Yates was someone I did not know personally, but saw almost every day for many years at CAC, where he kept us safe. He always had a smile for everyone, and his presence will be missed. Praying for his family and friends.

    For elderly or disable people, there are many different options available to attend worship service without

    leaving the house. As technology progresses, cab companies continue to do all they can to

    keep up and to incorporate new equipment into their vehicles.

    Judgement how technology works can be a dispute for some while

    for others it can be to some an enjoyable blame.
