One of the individuals behind the Ice Bucket Challenge to support Lou Gehrig's disease research has died in a diving accident. Corey Griffin, 27, helped popularize the worldwide trend in which people either pledge $100 to ALS research or record themselves getting drenched by frigid water, then post the stunt online and challenge others to do the same.

Griffin then went under water again not resurfacing," the Nantucket Police Department said in a statement.
