    The harbormaster in Rockport, Massachusetts, says a scuba diver died off the town's coast over the weekend.

    Rosemary Lesch tells The Gloucester Daily Times that the victim was one of two people diving from a small boat about a mile off Thacher Island at about 8:30 a.m. Saturday.

    The victim's name has not been made public, but Lesch says the man was from the North Shore.

    She says the diver had come up and was talking to his partner, but that he lost his mouthpiece and breathing regulator.

    The other diver was not injured.
