N.M. woman dies when Fla. dive boat capsizes

POMPANO BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A woman visiting South Florida from New Mexico died after a large wave hit a dive boat, causing it to capsize after a Thanksgiving Day dive trip.
Broward Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Dani Moschella says Nina Poppelsdorf died at a hospital shortly after the catamaran Coral Princess capsized Thursday afternoon. Three others were treated and released. A medical examiner will determine what killed Poppelsdorf.
Officials say Poppelsdorf was in South Florida with her nephew.
There were 23 people aboard the 45-foot boat as it returned from a dive trip Thursday. Officials say nearby boaters jumped into the water to pull people to safety. Pompano Beach Fire Rescue workers used personal watercraft to get to the site. The U.S. Coast Guard and other state and local agencies assisted in the rescue.
