Cave diver died in Eagle’s Nest, Florida

Messages coming out of the US are reporting the death of a diver in one of Florida’s most dangerous caves, Eagle’s Nest. Another victim turned out to be 53-year-old Davin Brannon from Dover, Florida. The case is being investigated by the sheriff and local police.

Eagle’s Nest is a notorious site. Since 1981, a total of twelve divers have died in the unlucky cave, and it must be remembered that between 1999 and 2003, it was closed and excluded from any diving.

Relatives of the victim claim that Davin was an experienced diver who had all the necessary training and practice for this type of diving. The pair of divers did not intend to go too deep. The aim of the dive was the first vestibule of the cave.

The diving was really just beginning when a medical problem arose. The accident happened just after entering a place known as “Ballroom”, which both men knew very well and where they had dived many times.

[blockquote style=”2″]”It was not the fault of lack of training or improper equipment selection. Davin was fully prepared for this dive, which was in fact a fairly straightforward technical dive. Something simply went wrong. David had been diving since the mid ’80s and was well aware of his capabilities and limitations.” – said Bonert[/blockquote].

Gregg Bonert got his friend ashore after the emergency and then called for help. Unfortunately, there was nothing more that could be done. Despite the rapid response, rescuers pronounced him dead on arrival. A medical autopsy report will reveal the exact cause of death.
