Does anyone know anything about the status of the young man that drowned on Friday? How about his wife and child that were with him? Is it common for an emergency response to take almost 30 minutes?

I just read a blog of somebody who is working at the hospital. (in think it’s an intern ship)

considering the distance to and from the island that is an incredibly quick response....

I was thinking the same thing Pietri.

I received a reply in the blog that the reaction time differs from case to case.

Very sad news. If I am understanding this correctly, 4 people drowned in the last week? I am hoping that is not an average week.

We lost a diver (not on our boat) at the Divi on 3/17/11. Henry ? From Boston. Found late in the morning dive, face down, mask on but his weight belt, reg and bc were missing. His equipment was found scattered in different areas at 90+ feet. We saw them doing CPR on him on the Divi dock and he was subsequently rushed away in the ambulance. He was overweight, his face was a deep purple color. He did not make it. Very Sad....the weird thing is that he shed his gear. Also, he asked our family to take his picture the night before. He was traveling alone TI Bonaire. He also asked my parents to take his picture with his camera earlier the night before he passed. We met another couple who reported the same thing...taking his picture solo.

certainly a sad thing loss of life is never easy as an Instructor and full time firefighter I am always evaluating my safety procedures and many times when diving with others evaluate both their health and safety not only for them but my piece of mind lets all review our safety while in and around the water and be less passive while on vacation so we all can go home safe....God bless those we lost
