This happened a few years ago. 6 recreational divers went out and decided that the water was too cloudy to go diving, so they decided instead to go body surfing. 5 of them were able to get out when they realized the waves were getting too big. One of them (center of video in a black full body diving ensemble) whom was floating face down after hitting rocks (which are shown protruding on the lower left at the end of video) did not make it out. The Coast Guard was called in but did not know at the time, they were coming into Middle Cove, Newfoundland, Canada to do a body recovery. They thought they were coming in to do a rescue. All 3 Coast Guardsmen were killed after their boat overturned and were then crushed by their very own boat against the rocks. The diver also died. The Coast Guard ship from which the smaller rubber inflatable boat (RIB) came from, aircraft, and other vessels searched over 2500 Sq. Nautical Miles and only found one of the Coast Guardsmen (deceased) because shortly after this video it became dark and a rescue became almost impossible.
