Quote:
A US man who passed away following a diving trip on Cayman’s North Wall this week has been identified as 51–year–old Martin Richard Linley.

Mr. Linley, an experienced diver, became unwell and lost consciousness during the Monday morning trip. The RCIPS Marine Unit and staff members from Resort Sports administered CPR to no avail. Mr. Linley was pronounced dead at George Town Hospital later that day.

His wife, Elizabeth, was on the dive trip with him.

According to reports from Mr. Linley’s hometown of Santa Rosa, California, he was the junior varsity soccer coach at Analy High School.

Mr. Linley was originally from England, and first came to the US in the mid–1980’s.

I'd have bet money it was Resort Sports before I even read the article. That whole resort and everything assocaited with it should be condemned!

What is Resort Sports? ( Do you mean a resort dive course or is Resort Sports the name of a business?) the article said that he was an experienced diver.

Resort Sports is the dive company for Beach Club, the whole thing should be torn down! Stayed there about 8 years ago when I was young and stupid. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

PostPosted: Mon Jan 04, 2010 4:44 pm    Post subject: Diving Deaths
 
In light of the most recent death on Dec 30, I'm wondering if whoever collects statistics on diving deaths and diving accidents in the Cayman Islands is noticing a statistically significant spike. How often do deaths or accidents occur? Are people left to their own wits to select reputable operators or is there any governmental regulation? Coming from Canada, we can hardly turn around without the government regulating us, so I'm just curious how it works in the Caymans.
