A 55-year-old Winnipeg man died on Saturday in a incident at West Hawk Lake.

Police received a report of a male diver in distress around 1:30 p.m.

RCMP said in a release on Saturday evening that the man was on a recreational dive with his wife when the accident occurred.

He was pulled from the water and later pronounced deceased at the scene.

Investigators believe the man may have run out of air and suffered a medical issue as he surfaced.

No foul play is suspected.
