Date: 31/12/2010

Robert Ihimaere Bernard Campbell, 49, from Christchurch died after his long hair became entangled in kelp while diving for mussels in Lyttelton Harbour. Mr Campbell’s brother, Murray Campbell, said when the boat was off Godley Head his younger brother decided to strip off and dive in to look for mussels and kelp. His waist-length hair caught in the kelp when he went down and he was later seen floating entangled in kelp.
