It seems that many time we think of diving accidents as dives related with tech diving, or extreme diving… but dying at just 4 meters of water… 100 meters from shore… is simply sad and concerning. Specially when the victim was a mom spending Mothers Day diving…

here is what the Australian Press is saying about the accident

“The fit and healthy 46-year-old had spent Mother’s Day diving with another woman when she began experiencing difficulties shortly before 2pm.

They were returning from a recreational dive on a reef off the southern end of Terrigal Beach on the Central Coast and planned to come ashore at an area known as The Haven, where hundreds of people had gathered for Mother’s Day at the beach.

Her dive buddy told police the woman, from Wyoming, near Gosford, signalled urgently that she needed to get to the surface and get to shore.

But by the time the pair surfaced the woman had lost consciousness and also stopped breathing.

Inspector George Bradbury said her friend had tried to drag the woman to shore before screaming for help to onlookers.”
