KIEL, WI (WTAQ) - The U.S. Navy continues to investigate an accident in Guam that killed a diver from eastern Wisconsin.
22-year-old Navy diver Robert Dotzler of Kiel apparently drowned last Wednesday in an operation at a naval base harbor.
The Navy Times said Dotzler was watching other divers from the surface in a “snorkeling-like role.”
When they surfaced, several divers noticed that Dotzler was missing. He was found at the bottom of the harbor.
He was unconscious when he was pulled from the water, and he died later at a naval hospital.
Dotzler had been assigned to the USS Frank Cable since 2011. He was stationed at a training center in Florida before his assignment in Guam
