MARATHON, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a California man has died after he dove off a pontoon boat into shallow waters while trying to catch a football in the Florida Keys.

Witnesses told Monroe County Sheriff’s officials that 46-year-old Liam John Daly of San Diego took a diving leap into the water Saturday, but was facedown and unresponsive when he resurfaced.

Authorities met the pontoon boat back at the docks and took Daly to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
