Investigators have begun the process of determining why a full dive boat sank suddenly this week.
The 10m Safari Diver was carrying 11 guests and 2 crew when she began taking on water at the stern before sinking two miles off the cost of Pompano Beach in South East Florida. Witnesses report that the sinking took less than a minute.
Nearby vessels scrambled to help and were able to retrieve divers and crew from the water. The vessel sank in 20m and will not be recovered.
An investigation by the Coast Guard into what went wrong and caused the boat to sink is ongoing.
