A Dunedin woman has died after scuba diving in South Florida, authorities said. Deborah Garrett Oshea died Saturday afternoon after she was taken to a West Palm Beach hospital. The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office says Oshea spent about 10 minutes in the Atlantic Ocean, diving down about 10 feet. The recently certified diver surfaced after she started to have breathing problems, and rescuers performed CPR. Authorities say Oshea's diving instructor was present.
