SAN DIEGO (AP) -- A Marine has died while scuba diving off the coast of San Diego.
The San Diego County medical examiner's office says the 26-year-old woman was with a dive group exploring a sunken ship off Mission Beach on Saturday when she failed to surface.
After a two-hour search, her body was located at the Yukon _ a former Canadian minesweeper that was intentionally sunk at a recreational dive site known as Wreck Alley.

The cause of her death is under investigation and her diving equipment will be checked for possible malfunctions.
