SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - Another diver has died while searching for bodies inside a sunken South Korean ferry.

A government task force spokesman says the civilian diver was underwater today, cutting open parts of the ferry to make searches easier, when a boom and a moan could be heard over his communication device.

The diver was pulled to the surface as he fell unconscious. He was flown by helicopter to a hospital where he was declared dead.

Another civilian diver died earlier this month while helping in the recovery.
