Default Wakefield diver died off Diamond Island

Sunday morning a group of four divers were in the water off Diamond Island when one of them became unresponsive.

Prayers for his family and loved ones. So sad!

All about Scuba diving fatalities: https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Scuba_diving_fatalities

You know for two dollars at Market Basket this summer you could of bought a 42"x 2" foam swim noodle, and made a swim safe swimmers belt by running a line through the center hole of the noodle and then tying it very tight around your waist and then go swimming on top of the water, as opposed to down deep under the water with a Scuba tank.

Down deep under the Lake Winnipesaukee water there is absolutely nothing much to see except for rocks, sand, silt, muck, and cold water. Is better to stay on top of the water with the big views and go swim 200-yards of side stroke and breast stroke than to go Scuba diving.

If people were meant to be swimming under the water, they would be born with gills as opposed to lungs. Fish have gills ..... people have lungs.

How many people reading this thread here think they can swim 200-yards on Lake Winnipesaukee? Probably about 20% of the readers could swim 200-yards, so is best to work on your swimming ability and fuhgetabout Scuba diving. Scuba diving is best left to the NH Fish & Game dive team, who have expertise and work as an underwater team.

I think that tinnitus has really affected your judgement. Someone died...How about some respect?
