A tourist dies in dive boat fire

-

An American diver has died after a fire on a safari boat to the north of Marsa Alam in the Southern Egyptian Red Sea earlier today.

Details are scarce, but we do know that the 18 other guests, who apparently hailed from various countries, were rescued, along with 12 Egyptian crew members, from the boat – referred to in reports as the Suzana.

Qusayr Prosecution has started its investigation, under the supervision of Attorney General Nabil Abuzinah, into the incident.

It is only a few months since the devastating boat fire on the Conception off California, which claimed the lives of 34 people, so this incident, while tragic, could have been far more serious and seen additional casualties.
