MIAMI – A father and his 15 year old son died on Christmas day while on a cave diving excursion off the Floridian coast.
When her fiancée and his son hadn’t returned by noontime on Christmas day, Darrin Spivey became alarmed and notified authorities immediately. Rescue divers found the lifeless bodies of the two men later that day.
A family member says that both the dad and his son were experienced and certified divers and that the dad had checked out the caves prior to taking his son there.
A rescue diver says “things went wrong for them because they didn’t have the proper breathing mixture in their tanks for depths up to 200 feet”. The diver added that both the dad and the son were not certified for cave diving; a sport to be known as being extremely dangerous.
Signs are posted by the caves pointing out the real dangers of cave diving.
Another rescue diver said “if both of them would have been informed better they would most likely still be alive”.
Cave diving is a truly dangerous sport because of many “unknowns” that divers are faced with when going down in the abyss. Underwater tunnels can suddenly become very tight, trapping divers with their tanks between the rocks. Diving in tunnels under water can become disorienting and divers can get lost and not find their way back to the surface. A tunnel can go much deeper than the diver anticipates, leaving him without enough air to return to the surface.
