Cozumel, Q.R. – A dive instructor suffered serious leg injuries when she made contact with the boat’s propellers after entering the water.
The accident occurred yesterday at 8:10 a.m. near the Santa Rosa reef off Cozumel when she jumped into the water before the propellers were shut down. Upon entering the water, the 30-year-old woman, who is originally from Argentina, made contact with the moving blades. Both legs suffered serious damage.
She was taken by boat to a nearby private pier where an ambulance was waiting. The woman was rushed to the hospital where she remains in stable but serious condition.
