    Freediver died at Dahab's Blue Hole

    http://www.divernet.com/home-diving-...blue-hole.html

    I always considered freediving as described in article as some sort of suicidal. It is still hard to hear that another person died in this place...

    What with that, the 2 separate incidents in the Kent area and Steve Slater, it's been a bad few days for the sport

    Also a fatality on the U74 earlier this month which seems to not have been on the news, not even local news. Not sure if the body has actually been recovered.

    I knew that guy and close friends with others who were very close to him. Indeed it's been tough.

    Sadly he died saving someone else, a tragic loss.
