The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of a man who died while scuba-diving in the ocean near Nanoose last Wednesday.
He was 52 year old Martin Keith Bishop, of Edmonton.
Bishop was visiting the mid-Island region on a family vacation and was on a scuba-diving expedition with a dive-master and one other person.
They entered the water near the intersection of Tyee Crescent and Blueback Road in Nanoose, a well-known diving spot.
During the dive, something went wrong and Bishop died at the scene.
The BC Coroners Service and RCMP continue to investigate this death.
