UPDATE (10 p.m.)—Two divers from the U.S. Navy died Tuesday as the result of an incident at a pond on Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG), according to officials.
The APG Emergency Services team was called to an "incident" at the unexploded ordnance range pond, a statement from APG reported; officials did not elaborate on the nature of the incident.
One person was pronounced dead at the scene, said officials.
The second victim was taken to Harford Memorial Hospital and was pronounced dead, said APG spokesperson Kelly Luster.
