A scuba diver was found dead in the waters of Town Neck Beach in Sandwich on Saturday.

NECN.com reports that kayakers found the unresponsive man near the east entrance to the Cape Cod Canal.

They reportedly noticed a scuba flag, meant to warn boaters and swimmers of a diver under the water, that hadn't moved in a very long time.

Police were called to the scene and say sadly the diver was already dead when they arrived.

The man was scuba diving alone and foul play is not suspected. Police say the diver was experienced and appeared to be wearing all the proper equipment.
