ABERDEEN, Md. (WJZ)– The Navy announces punishment for five sailors after an investigation into the deaths of two divers at the Aberdeen Super Pond.

The U.S. Navy says it’s taken administrative or disciplinary actions against the sailors, including two facing possible military trial.

Diver 1st Class James Reyher and diver 2nd Class Ryan Harris died in the Harford County military base’s underwater explosive test facility, known as “Super Pond.”

Witnesses say their underwater breathing units failed and a line that tethered them to a boat became tangled.

If the men reject the Navy’s discipline they could face court-martial.

Reyher and Harris were the second and third divers to die in less than a month earlier this year.

A former Marine working as a civilian technician died while performing routine maintenance.
