WELLESLEY ISLAND — The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department identified Monday the victim of a diving accident Friday afternoon in the St. Lawrence River.

Investigators said David Remling, 60, of Delanson, Schenectady County, apparently died because of an air embolism caused by a rapid decompression after a 174-foot dive in the river that day.

An autopsy was performed Monday morning by Dr. Samuel A. Livingstone, county medical examiner.

Deputies are asking anyone with more information about the accident to call 788-1441.
