ABERDEEN, Md. -
We now know the names of
two navy divers who died while conducting dive operations at Aberdeen Proving Grounds.
They are 28-year-old 1st
class James Reyher
of Caldwell, Ohio and 23-year-old 2nd
class Ryan Harris of Gladstone, Missouri.
Both were assigned to mobile diving and salvage unit at Fort Story. They both were killed doing a routine drill.
Aberdeen tells us the pond is used for a variety of tests, including shock testing of boat hulls. We're told there is no connection to the death that happened here just a month ago.
