Lake search resumes for diver

1:50 pm on 16 July 2011

A search at a lake on the North Shore of Auckland for a missing diver is to resume on Saturday morning.

The diver was one of two who failed to surface during a training session in Lake Pupuke, Takapuna, on Friday afternoon.

Three instructors and five students entered the lake from a jetty, but only six of the group surfaced.

A man's body was later recovered and a third diver was taken to hospital with hypothermia.

The dead diver was Tyrone North, 37, a trainee, of South Auckland.
