JUPITER, Fla. - The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office was Johnny-on-the-spot Wednesday morning when several divers became separated from their commercial dive boat.

The sheriff's office marine and aviation units teamed up to help rescue the group.

A total of seven divers were separated.

Two divers were found immediately and taken to a marina, the sheriff's office said.

The aviation unit spotted five other divers a few miles away and directed the marine unit to them, according to the sheriff's office.

A dive master from Jupiter Dive Center said its boat was able to pull the divers out of the water. The dive master said it was not their boat that lost track of the divers. According to the Coast Guard, the boat the divers were in was operated by Emerald Charters.
