Course Director dies in Florida

-

Zak Jones, a Course Director with Pro Dive International in Florida, recently died whilst on a routine tourist dive.

According to a report based on US Coast Guard information, Jones and a buddy descended to a 46m-deep reef. The buddy is reported to have looked around to see Jones struggling, seemingly tangled in regulator hosing. The buddy is said to have finned over to find Jones unconscious, his regulator out of his mouth, and to have set Jones to go up quickly before ascending more slowly himself, so as to avoid decompression illness.

A police investigation is being conducted into the incident. Pro Dive International has, via its website, set up a fund for donations in support of Jones’ widow, Robyn.
