By Aaron Humes: Seventy-two-year-old Mona Bhatti, a doctor visiting from the United States, apparently drowned in the waters of the Caribbean Sea off San Pedro Town, Ambergris Caye on Monday.
Information is that Bhatti and three other persons went diving with Ambergris Divers, led by dive master and tour guide Manuel Ruben Caliz.
Bhatti was paired with another diver, but ten minutes into the excursion Caliz noticed that Mona had begun ascending to the surface. He released his safety inflation device to indicate to the boat that a diver was coming up and to be on the lookout, and began following up himself along with the rest of the diving crew and tourist divers.
On reaching the surface, he observed the boat captain holding Mona’s hand to keep her above water. CPR and oxygen were unsuccessfully administered as Mona did not respond, and the crew set off back to town and the Ambergris Hope Clinic, where Mona Bhatti was formally pronounced dead.
The matter is being treated as a sudden death investigation by police.
