Names of Navy divers who died in APG pond released


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.
