Hyperbaric Chamber At P.G. Fire Station Back In Use

Story came just after a diver died at Stillwater Cove.

The chamber was not used for the diving victims Monday. They had the chamber on standby. The team was waiting for permission from physicians to admit the divers for the treatment, however one passed away, and the other diver did not show symptoms of decompression sickness. As a result, the chamber was not used.
It would have been the first time in nearly a year that this chamber would have been used again. It is one of the three in the whole state of California. There is one in San Diego, and one in Catalina. The chamber was temporarily not in use here because of insurance issues.

June 21 – Body of diver recovered from beach

The Monterey County Coroner’s Office has been called to San Carlos Beach to retrieve a drowning victim who may be the diver reported missing Sunday night.

“To be honest, I don’t know how anybody would be able to make an ID that quickly. I don’t know the condition of the body,” said Sonne, who had just spoken with a sergeant at the scene who reported the coroner had just arrived.

The drowning victim was discovered by other divers floating in a kelp bed about 30 yards off shore Friday morning. Sonne said he was in diving gear, minus his tanks.

The family of a Marin County man reported him missing Sunday night. Police found his car parked at San Carlos Beach and his flashlight underwater, but could not locate him and called off the search Monday.

Teen Diver Deaths Ruled Accidental

The deaths of Stephen Anderson, 16, and Keegan Aiazzi, 17, both of Carson City, Nev. were caused by asphyxia due to ocean drowning, the coroner’s report stated. The teens drowned on April 9.

They said forensic inspection of their scuba diving gear showed there hadn’t been any failure to the systems. The gear, recovered from the ocean floor, was tested by Master Dive Repair Technician Ernest Bourne. It was tested in a laboratory and also in ocean conditions similar to what the teens would’ve experienced, the Coroner’s Unit said.

April 10th Diver Deaths Investigated

Article names the divers and reports they were both certified and had been diving days before. Investigators are searching for the scuba tanks in the ocean.

It likely will be a few weeks before investigators can precisely say how two Nevada teenagers died during a scuba diving excursion Saturday off Cannery Row.

Stephen Anderson, 16, and Keegan Aiazzi, 17, were among a group of divers from a Carson City, Nev., high school oceanography class who went into the water from a commercial dive boat about a quarter mile from shore.

After they failed to surface and were reported missing, rescue divers from the Monterey Express charter boat found them on the ocean floor about 70 feet underwater, and they subsequently were pronounced dead at Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula.

The divers’ deaths, which left the tight-knit Carson City community in shock, is being investigated by the Monterey County coroner’s office and the Coast Guard. If foul play was suspected, Monterey police would handle the case.
