September 11, 1977 [Long Beach Independent]: “Bid to save diver off Catalina fails. An 18-year-old West Covina SCUBA diver drowned off Catalina Island Sunday when he ran out of air. Friends said Colin Buckman tried desperately to reach the surface 'buddy-breathing' with a companion, but passed out and drowned about 11:15 A.M. Lifeguards recovered his body in about 95 feet of water just off Cherry Cove.”
