Woman dies during excursion on Royal Caribbean's Explorer of the Seas
A 51 year old woman from the United States died yesterday after suffering complications related to a pre-existing heart condition while on a diving excursion in Bermuda.
The woman was traveling on Royal Caribbean's Explorer of the Seas when the ship stopped in Bermuda on a tour with Hartley's Bell Diving. She had come back to the surface after a helmet dive, which is a passive form of diving in shallow water where divers wear an airtight helmet to view underwater, and complained about being short of breath.
Excursion staff gave her oxygen and called for EMTs to attend to her.
Staff gave her oxygen and called Harbour Radio, who arranged for EMTs to meet the boat at Sandy's Boat Club. When the EMT's arrived, they attended to her but she lost consciousness and later passed away at the King Edward VII Hospital in Bermuda.
