Former state high court Justice McRae in ICU after scuba diving incident in Cozumel

Former state Supreme Court Justice Chuck McRae is in the intensive care unit at a Cozumel, Mexico, hospital after a scuba diving incident.

McRae’s daughter, attorney Rebecca McRae Langston, is in Mexico with her father.

“I’m not sure what happened,” Langston said in a message. “He’s been diving for decades, depths over 100 feet and night dives included. They claim he went down 20 feet and panicked. I don’t know if it was something more serious. He aspirated a lot of salt water.”
