Event Details

When there is a scuba fatality in Los Angeles County, the Office of Medical Examiner-Coroner is charged with finding out why. Sometimes it’s medically related, many times it’s diver error, but all 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 2021 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. So by coming and listening to what is presented from the actual cases, people might pick up some pointers and safety ideas that will prevent them from being one of the subjects in our 2022 presentation.
