Divers Down!

Two Diving Fatalities in As Many Days at Nusa Penida’s Crystal Bay

(9/5/2012) In the space of less than 48-hour, two divers have apparently drowned in separate incident at Crystal Bay, Nusa Penida.

A 34-year-old Japanese female tourist, Ai Tanata, lost her life while scuba diving on Sunday afternoon, August 27, 2012.

The woman, swimming with a group of 13 other divers, went missing at around 1:30 pm on Sunday. Her body was found by a search team, including employees from the dive operator who brought the woman to Crystal Bay, dead and neutrally buoyant at a depth of 43 meter the following morning.

As reported by Beritabali.com, Tanata’s body was sent to the Sanglah General Hospital for forensic examination.

A Second Diving Fatality

Kompas.com reports that less than 48 hours after the disappearance and death of the Japanese tourist in Crystal Bay, a 43-year-old Danish man, Hendrik Kent Jensen, also lost his life while diving in Crystal Bay.

Jensen, who operates island bungalows on Nusa Penida, failed to resurface after scuba diving with two friends in the early daylight hours of Tuesday, August 28, 2012.

When Jensen finally did float to the surface he had stopped breathing. He was then rushed to a local medical center on Nusa Penida where he was pronounced dead. Later his corpse was removed to the morgue at Bali’s Sanglah General Hospital.
