  The two dove off the pier, said Braman, and began swimming back to shore.  Cynthia went under the surface and did not reappear.
Hunts Sister
 Mark dived under water in search for his sister, but because the water was churned up by the large crowd at the beach he was unable to find her, according to the coroner.

  She was given mouth-to-mouth resuscitation until firemen arrived with a resuscitator.  Braman pronounced her dead on the scene.
