Authorities have identified the diver who died in Raymond Monday as Steven Viola, 53, of Gray.

Viola was scuba diving in Sebago Lake off Birch Point to retrieve an ATV which had fallen through the ice last weekend, according to the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office. He had a support team, which pulled him from the water but he was not breathing.

The state medical examiner is scheduled to perform an autopsy today.

Authorities suspect the man may have had a medical problem that precipitated the incident.
