La Jolla scuba diver trapped by high surf rescued by lifeguards

Swimmers rescued a scuba diver who was buffeted by high surf after he became trapped in a depression at the side of a cliff in La Jolla Cove, a lifeguard lieutenant said.

The diver was rescued about 8:40 a.m., San Diego lifeguard Lt. Nick Lerma said. Waves in the area were as high as 8 feet, Lerma said.

When lifeguards brought the man to shore, he was having difficulty breathing and was in shock, Lerma said. Paramedics took him to a hospital.
