Hi, Does anyone know anything about a diving accident on the island last week?
I came across some troubling information on this site http://awe24.com/ and was wondering if anyone knew anything about it.. Bewareone of the pic's of the dive boat is troubling as it does show a woman's legs but the rest of her is covered.
What I heard was the following:
This happened to the spouse of couple that has been diving with Clive for years and always go back to him, with good reason. Clive is known as one of the more safe divers on Aruba and pays a great deal of attention to the welfare of his divers.
The day prior to the accident, the lady in question had been coughing and not feeling 100%. On the dive day, it seems as if Clive asked her several times if she was feeling OK and if she was up to the dive. She confirmed that she was. While they were diving, the lady motioned (signaled) that she she needed to go up and Clive went with her. She pulled herself up on a Guide-Rope attached to the boat and got to the top. Clive entered the boat and took of his equipment to assist her and when he turned, she was in the water staring downward. clive called out to her but she was motionless. He then grabbed her arm and brought her on deck immediately and gave her the proper emergency assistance, however it was too late.
The husband, knows Clive for the many years of diving that I mentioned and he absolutely does not hold clive at fault in any manner.
The family has taken the proper steps with the handling of the ladies body and are of course grief stricken. To say the least, Clive is heart broken at the loss of his long time Canadian diving friend.
