Divers Make Horrific Discovery Off Egyptian Coast In The Red Sea

While diving in the Blue Hole near the small town of Dahab, in the Red Sea, off the Egyptian coast, divers made a horrific discovery- the body of another scuba diver. The body (who’s identity is unknown) was discovered at the depth of 367 feet below the surface.  Apparently, the unknown diver was alone and that is a mistake some only experience once (for obvious reasons). If scuba diving, it is a smart practice to always dive with a buddy in the event of any emergencies.

Here is that video:

On the east coast of Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, a few miles north of the city of Dahab, is a diving and snorkeling site known as the Blue Hole. Every day, divers make the journey from Dahab by jeep or camel, eager to explore the coral-lined, 394-foot-deep underwater sink hole known as the Blue Hole. At the water’s edge, beside some wooden lounge chairs, is a faded, hand-painted sign. Decorated with pictures of fish, a friendly dolphin, and a bubble-blowing diver, it reads “EASY ENTRY – BLUE HOLE.” It’s only a few feet from the sign to the sink hole. It is sometimes referred to as: A Diver’s Cemetery.

Technical divers — those who venture blow the 130-foot limit recommended for recreational diving — love the Blue Hole because its unusual structure offers a unique challenge. On the northeast side of the sink hole, 184 feet below the surface, is a horizontal tunnel that leads to the open sea. Known as The Arch, the 85-foot-long passage is difficult to enter due to the darkness, poor visibility, and down currents that grab at a diver’s fins. But with fish wriggling by in the silent depths and coral formations catching the eye, it’s certainly beautiful
