SEATTLE (AP) - A diver who was missing off Alki Point in West Seattle was rescued 100 feet underwater and rushed to the hospital Saturday.

Seattle police say two other divers found the missing man about 100 feet offshore and brought him to the surface. They were hospitalized as a precaution because of their rapid ascent to the surface after finding the missing man.

The missing diver was reported to be in his mid 20s. The other divers were a 52-year-old woman and a man in his mid 20s.

Medics performed CPR on the missing diver before he was rushed to Seattle's Harborview Medical Center.
