    Always sad to hear this type of news.

    I found an unconfirmed report of this death on another forum, stating that this was a night, solo dive by a rebreather diver (Type Unknown). Whilst oly hearsay, the source of that report was a well known local Dive Shop operator.

    No other details available.
