    DandyDon,
    Thank you for brining these events to our attention. It is a sad but important service that you provide to the diving community. Hopefully we learn from the stories you find. You have probably saved many lives.

    I don't know about that, but I think I have saved mine a time or two. By nature I seem to be an accident looking for a place at times.

    As far as i understood he was already pulled out of the water unconscious and not breathing, they tried to do advanced CPR but was declared dead upon arriving at the hospital.

    The person diving with him said a Panic attack form very strong currents and bad visibility, they lost sight of each other and from there its anyone's guess...

    That’s pretty heartbreaking to me. I lost my 16 year old a few weeks ago in an auto accident. It’s a pain no one should ever have to endure.

    I wish I could tell the family that I know how they feel, but there’s nothing anyone can say that will make it any better at all.

    If you have people you love, spend as much time as you can with them. Never miss a chance to be near them or take a photo or video with them. You’ll kick yourself for missed opportunities if they are snatched from you.

    I'm sorry to hear about your lost. I lost my brother when I was 13 in car accident too. He was 16. In my dream he never grew up. He was always be my 16 years old brother even 40 years later. Time & memory were ceased for him in my brain.

    Back to the accident, this place sounds like not a good place to let a newbie, especially a 13 years old, to start diving.
