There was a dive death when we were staying at the Fiesta Americana Grand Coral Beach in June. My husband, my friend and I were just beaching it while her husband and son were out diving. My friend's son is 12 and was getting his junior diver's certificate. We noticed a military boat come close to the pier. There seemed to be a flurry of activity at the shop and "suits" from inside the hotel ran down there. We talked to the lifeguard and asked why a military boat would be there. He said that there could have been an accident. A dive boat came in and it looked like people were leaning over a person, maybe doing CPR, it was hard to tell. We couldn't tell if it was the dive boat our group left in or not. We rushed down to the dive shop to make sure there wasn't an issue with the boat her husband and son were on. When we tried to ask questions several people just smiled at us and acted like they didn't speak English, when we knew they spoke English very well the day before. Finally, we insisted that one woman tell us what was going on and explained our situation. She said their boat wasn't due back for 1 1/2 hr and that they were fine. Thank God. As it turns out, a woman diver, who was going for her Master Diver certification died during a wreck dive. We watched them carry her away with a blanket over her body. It was horrible! One dive master told our husbands that she possibly could have hyperventilated and breathed her own carbon dioxide because the current was extremely strong that day. I was appalled to see a vacationer taking photos on his cell phone. That was disgusting. I have thought about this woman nearly everyday since my vacation. I wonder what actually happened to her. As the wife of a diver, it is so scary to know that such an experienced diver like she was, can still have a crisis in the water. I also wonder why the story was never posted on the internet on news sites or dive websites. This information is usually shared among divers. I wonder if the dive company had something to hide? I wonder if the Mexican media keep stories of this nature out of the news very often? Solo Buceo, the dive company at the Fiesta Americana, was not the dive operators that the woman was diving with.
