An Asheboro man died off the coast of Brunswick County on Sunday, Aug. 17, during an afternoon dive, county coroner Dave Crocker said.
Other divers noticed 54-year-old Michael Gilliam Frye floating on top of the water near Southport shortly after noon. The Coast Guard was called for assistance just before 12:30 p.m. and Frye died at 3:15 p.m., Crocker said.
The divers said they last saw Frye about 11:30 a.m. and he was doing well. He and more than 30 other divers were inspecting an old shipwreck site during their trip, Crocker said.
