SANTA ROSA (AP) — An abalone diver has drowned in the waters off Northern California.

Sonoma County Coroner's Det. Jody Olney says lifeguards pulled the 60-year-old man from the water off Salt Point State Park Saturday morning. Efforts to resuscitate him were unsuccessful.

His name was being withheld pending notification of relatives.

The Press Democrat says ( the state park is a popular destination for recreational abalone divers.

In April, a 36-year-old San Francisco man died after getting caught in a rip tide off the park. Several divers pulled Kenneth Liu to shore but he couldn't be revived.
