Diver cried as he brought body of free diving teen to surface

Hunt was “free diving” — which uses no breathing aides such as scuba tanks — with his father and friends when he went missing around 2 p.m.

When Skyler didn’t resurface, the authorities were alerted.

Triston Hunt, Skyler’s father, also put out a plea for help on his Facebook page on a post stamped 2:41 p.m.: “Any divers I need your assistance[.] my son [went] free diving with me off Spanish River Boulevard today 30 minutes ago and I believe he was a shallow water blackout and I cannot find him[.] any divers assistance is needed call me….”

“Shallow water blackout” is a loss of consciousness resulting from low oxygen to the brain during extended underwater breath-holding.
