  • A Tragic Diving Accident Turns Suspicious After All Evidence Is Erased on Random Terrifying Scuba Accidents That Will Make You Think Twice About Diving

    (#16) A Tragic Diving Accident Turns Suspicious After All Evidence Is Erased

    What was supposed to be a trip of a lifetime turned into something far more tragic when a young 23-year-old died on her first introductory scuba dive at the Great Barrier Reef. The young woman was learning the basics when she got separated from her instructor. About a half an hour later, she was found on the sea floor and was declared dead by drowning.

    A short time later, her friends and family asked for pictures from the boat right before she went on her dive, but they were shocked to discover that all pictures from that day were inexplicably deleted. The family doesn't necessarily suspect foul play, but they question why they would need to delete those photos if they didn't reveal something important.

    (#8) A Russian Diver Is Cut in Half By a Boat Propeller

    In what has got to be one of the most horrific ways to die, two divers met their tragic ends while diving in Thailand. Even though they were in the proper diving zone, upon surfacing, two men were hit by a passing speedboat, cutting one of them in half and sending the other man sinking below the surface. To survive the dangers of diving only to be cut in half by a reckless boat driver is a cruel fate, and just shows how careful you need to be of your surroundings at all times.

    (#3) A Diver Panics and Succumbs to Nitrogen Narcosis, Removing His Own Breathing Apparatus

    In April 2000, Russian diver Yuri Lipski geared up to dive at one of the world's most beautiful diving spots, the Blue Hole. Located on the east coast of Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, the spot has become a must for divers who want to see the coral-lined, 394-foot-deep sink hole.

    Lipski ended up dying at around the 300-foot mark. When you go that deep, your body is often subjected to nitrogen narcosis, a mental state that starts off similar to extreme drunkenness, but can eventually cause severe mental symptoms like hallucinations, paranoia, confusion, vertigo, and eventually death.

    Lipski's body and found that the diver had been recording at the time of his death. The footage is on YouTube, and it's highly disturbing to watch the diver start to panic and thrash around. In the end, he removes his breathing apparatus and the recording stops. 

  • A Diving Lesson Goes Horribly Wrong on Random Terrifying Scuba Accidents That Will Make You Think Twice About Diving

    (#7) A Diving Lesson Goes Horribly Wrong

    In this harrowing tale, a boyfriend recounts how the love of his life almost died due to negligence from her instructors. While taking diving lessons, the man's girlfriend felt she was being harassed by the instructors, who wouldn't teach her the simple maneuvers she felt she needed to learn. During one of the dives, the girl's regulator (the device you hold in your mouth to breathe oxygen from your tank) was laden with sand, which caused malfunctions while she was underwater.

    She took off her regulator and reached for her "octopus" (a back-up regulator) to help her breathe, but her instructor stopped her from doing so and forced her to try again with her own regulator. It caused the girl's stress to get even worse, and when the boyfriend tried to come help, the instructor pushed him away. As the girl was choking, the instructor tried shoving the regulator into her mouth, but missed and just hit her in the face instead. This shocked her and caused her to inhale water, so the boyfriend grabbed the girl and took her to the surface.

    When they reached the top, the instructor started yelling at her that they needed to continue her training while she was literally throwing up water and begging for her life. She was hospitalized and was close to death for quite awhile. Miraculously, she pulled through, but now suffers from memory loss, depression, and a fear of water.

  • An Experienced Diver Vanishes in a Wrecked Ship Without a Trace on Random Terrifying Scuba Accidents That Will Make You Think Twice About Diving

    (#4) An Experienced Diver Vanishes in a Wrecked Ship Without a Trace

    No matter how much experience you have diving, one small mistake or error can lead to your death. Diver Tom Pritchard was working on attaching a mooring line to the famed wreck of the Andrea Doria, which had come loose, when he suddenly vanished. Pritchard had close to 1,000 dives under his belt and the divers working with him had said Pritchard had a reputation for being incredibly careful and detail-oriented when it came to his dives.

    In the end, it didn't matter. When the other divers surfaced, they immediately noticed Pritchard was not with them. The Coast Guard was called to sweep the area, but found nothing, and the captain of the ship that Pritchard was on had to make the difficult call to not let the divers go back down immediately to look for Pritchard.

    The Andrea Doria wreckage has always been dangerous and has claimed more than 15 lives due to its unstable nature. As his remains still haven't been found, we might never know whether Pritchard died from equipment failure, a medical emergency, or if some part of the ship simply collapsed around him.
