At the 1300 block of Bay Shore Drive, 21-year-old Daniel Monnin and four friends were diving into some water from a rocky ledge.

Monnin did not return from the drive and his friends searched for him for several minutes before calling police.

Emergency crews found Monnin underneath about 20 feet of water.  He was taken to Ohio State University Main Hospital and was pronounced dead shortly before 7 a.m.
