A scuba diver died after being rescued off the coast of San Diego Sunday afternoon, the U.S. Coast Guard said. 

A distress call first went out from dive boat Marissa, which is usually moored at Mission Bay, around 12:10 p.m. 

The Coast Guard said a second diver pulled the 42-year-old man in danger out of the water about 10 nautical miles southwest of Point Loma. They were at Hogan's Wreck, a popular dive site. 

A small boat took the patient to the Ballast Point Coast Guard Station for an emergency transfer, but the man was pronounced dead there.
