Carnival Pride - as reported on cruisejunkie.com :-

From a passenger: We were in Grand Turk on Wednesday April 4, 2012. There was a diving accident. Rumor was that a 17 year old drowned. Ship was delayed an hour as cruise medical staff was onsite. At least one family member stayed behind on the island with the injured diver.

My prayers are very active tonight

Somebody just posted a review on here of their cruise last week, on the Pride, and it was mentioned that there was a medical emergency and the family had to stay ashore. It was also mentioned that they didn't make it. My prayers go out to this family.

It was definitely scary and sad I read an article though today from the police in Grand Turk and it said the young man was evacuated to the United States and as far as they knew in critical condition. I hope that somehow he pulls through and is okay ....not how anyone wants to have their vacation end We said lots of prayers for all involved ....

I did some searches and could find nothing but different versions of the same news article. I hope this means the boy is still alive, after being airlifted to the US.
In any case the lack of media attention might be making a horribly difficult time for his family slightly less so.

I would like to know which dive operator it was. We had a bad experience last month there while on a HAL two-tank dive.

I was trying to find the article about the grandmother who disappeared while scuba diving recently. She was on a cruise (I believe carnival) and was doing a harder dive (Cozumel maybe) and they think she may have been sucked in a reef. She is presumed dead and her family is hoping her body will surface soon.

I'm going to go look for the article again.
