An 18-year-old Montana woman has died and a 22-year-old man was injured in a scuba diving accident in a popular Glacier National Park lake over the weekend.

Park rangers responded to a report of an accident at Lake McDonald just before 6pm on Sunday. 

The woman died at the scene, despite repeated efforts by her diving companions and first responders to revive her. Her name and cause of death have not been released as of Tuesday afternoon.

The 22-year-old man suffered shortness of breath and was transported by an ambulance to Kalispell Regional Medical Center. 

He was later flown to Seattle, Washington, for hyperbaric treatment, which is commonly used for decompression sickness that can be caused by surfacing too quickly while scuba diving.
