SEATTLE — A commercial geoduck diver from Bremerton was in critical condition at Harborview Medical Center on Tuesday afternoon after a diving accident in the water off Green Point that morning.
 
Sam Silverstein, 23, was taken by boat from the dive location to Ediz Hook in Port Angeles and then transported by ambulance to Olympic Medical Center in Port Angeles before being airlifted to the Seattle hospital, said Detective Sgt. Lyman Moores with the Clallam County Sheriff's Office.
 
Silverstein was in the intensive care unit at Harborview, hospital spokeswoman Susan Gregg said Tuesday.
 
“[There's] nothing suspicious at all,” Moores said.
 
“It was just a tragic accident.”
