Event Details

Any time there is a scuba fatality in Los Angeles County, the Office of Medical Examiner-Corner is charged with finding out why. Sometimes it’s medically related, many times it’s diver error, but all fatalities are thoroughly investigated to determine what went wrong. In this very popular 90‐minute panel discussion, you will get an overview of the Coroner’s work. The actual cases from 2018 will all be presented, covering the accident, the attempted treatment of the victim at the Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber, what the accident analysis discovered, and what the takeaway lessons are. It is said that the wise man learns from the mistakes of others and divers of all experience levels can learn lessons from these tragedies that could truly prevent a death in the future.
