    The very limited info in the story sounds like it may have been an incident that happened while the victim was diving rather than an incident that happened because the victim was diving. 48 isn't old, but it's certainly old enough for medical problems.

    I'm guessing the particular hookah was snuba, since the dive op that runs that boat offers it. I think snuba is pretty safe (they seem to have a very good track record), but it certainly has the potential for mishaps. I hope we get some decent info on this one.
