Diver Dies off New Zealand’s Motiti Island

Date: 25/03/2014

It was Blaire Kiddle’s (42) first dive since completing a dive course at an Indonesian resort off Bali. He had surfaced from a 10 minute dive in 15 metres of water off New Zealand’s Motiti Island but then appeared to lose consciousness and slipped back under the water.
Tauranga police said it seemed unlikely gear failure was the cause but would be tested to make sure it had no faults.
