Navy Charges 2 in Deaths of 2 Divers at Md. Pond

Posted:

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) - Two members of a Virginia-based Navy dive unit face military criminal charges of involuntary manslaughter and dereliction of duty in the February drowning deaths of two divers at an Army facility test pond near Baltimore.

Navy officials said Wednesday that the two defendants, whom they haven't identified, are a chief warrant officer 3 and a senior chief petty officer in Mobile Diving and Salvage Unit 2.

Two sailors, Diver 1st Class James Reyher, 28, of Caldwell, Ohio, and Diver 2nd Class Ryan Harris, 23, of Gladstone, Mo., drowned Feb. 26 during routine diving operations at an underwater weapons-testing facility, dubbed the Super Pond, at Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland. The defendants had a supervisory role in the events at the pond.

They will face an Article 32 hearing on May 21 at Naval Station Norfolk in Virginia.
