Divers from a rescue team later found Pape’s body about 48 feet under the surface.

    This information is false. I was there for the entire thing. It wasn’t a diving board it was a wooden dock built off of a rock face about 15 feet up. They found Pape 100 ft down not 48. Make sure your information is true before you start putting false facts out there.
