Rescued diver has died in Sioux Falls

by

Sioux Falls, SD (KELO-AM) A Minnehaha County dive team member has died three days after being rescue from a lake in Family Park in Sioux Falls during training exercises.

County Emergency Manager Lynn DeYoung says the loss of 43-year-old Jeff Alan Thumma is the first death in the 40-year history of the county dive team.

The dive team was training in the lake Thursday night when Thumma suddenly signaled he was in trouble and had to be pulled from the water by the other divers.

DeYoung says it took only about two minutes from the time the diver indicated he was in trouble to get him out of the water.
