Investigators are trying to determine what killed an eastern Pennsylvania teen during a scuba diving outing with his father at a recreation facility.

Colonial Regional Police say 16-year-old Kyle Kulp was in full diving gear when he was pulled from the water Saturday at a popular diving spot in Lower Nazareth Township, Northampton County.

Detective Gary Hammer says Kulp was diving at Dutch Springs, a former cement quarry-turned-diving spot when he became distressed. Bystanders tried to revive the teen before he was transported to a hospital and pronounced dead.

Hammer says the teen's death is not considered suspicious but a cause and manner of death has not yet been determined.
