Names of Navy divers who died in APG pond released

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.
