Two divers passed away off the coast of Wrightsville Beach this week in two separate incidents.
According to the Virginian Pilot, Amy Pieno, 48, of Hatteras Island, died leading a dive for shark teeth. The paper says the area Pieno died is known as shark tooth ledges. Officials are performing an autopsy to determine her cause of death.
Reports say a man from Maryland died in the same place four days before Pieno. He suffered an air embolism, which is a bubble trapped in a blood vessel.
