Mystery In Bonaire Diver Dies during Solo-Dive

Kralendijk – Last Thursday, October 17, a female diver died in Bonaire after a solo-dive with so called re-breather equipment. This is a closed system that allows the user to dive longer and not produce bubbles.

The 55 year old woman, an Australian diving physician and experienced diver, had descended to a depth of 90 meters on her own and was later found at a depth of 25 meters. The diver was no longer conscious at that point.

According to Xray magazine the woman no longer had a mouthpiece in her mouth when she was found. It is not yet known what caused the diver’s death.
