A San Francisco SCUBA diver drowned off Catalina Island Sunday after he gave his air tank to a companion who had run out of air, authorities reported. James Pudoff, 26, of 1859 14thy Ave., was diving with the San Francisco Clipper Dippers, a Bay area diving club, when he drowned. The companion to whom he gave his air supply, Nelson Chen, 26, also of San Francisco, surfaced successfully.
