Tuesday, October 9th, 2012

Press Release – 9th October 2012 – Amigos del Mar Ltd. – On October 8th, at about 4:45PM a very unfortunate accident claimed the life of one of our employees. Hector Duran, known to us as Chapin, has been with the Amigos del Mar Dive Shop for the past 20 years and was one of our most experienced and veteran employees.
All the relevant authorities were facilitated to conduct the necessary investigation into the very unfortunate tragedy. The family has expressed that they prefer confidentiality and as such further details will be disclosed only when the family choose to do so.
The incident is very unfortunate and has affected his co-workers and the management of the dive shop since he has been an extended family to this establishment. We continue to offer all the necessary support to the family and staff during their time of bereavement. Hector will surely be missed not only by his family and staff, but the wider tourism industry on Ambergris Caye, since he has been one of our front line employees.
We join the family in mourning and we also reiterate our support to the Duran family.
