Imagine that – you go on a vacation to Egypt, throw yourself in a crystal clear water to do some diving, you enjoy the blueness that surrounds you and the trinkets that can be collected from the ocean floor – nothing from your hectic life at home bothers you, not your boss, not your mother in law, not nothing. You’re feeling like you’re in the seventh heaven and then out of a fucking blue (literally) a boat taps you over your head and its propeller chops you up. You go from having the most awesome time of your life, to the worst you’ve ever been in a fraction of a second. And then you die of blood loss cause Egyptian hotel staff are incompetent, ill prepared and incapable to respond to emergency situations.
This happened to a Ukrainian tourists who was on a vacation in Sharm al-Sheikh, Egypt. The fellow stayed in City Sharm Hotel, a 4 star hotel with an exclusive beach and surrounding sea water. The tourist was taking a dive with his friend who was videotaping his good time on camera. At one point a speed boat flew right over the diver’s head just as he resurfaced to get a breath of fresh air. Fast moving boat bludgeoned the diver and its propeller finished him up.
Friends and onlookers tried to help the wounded diver, but as it turned out, hotel staff had no first aid kits at hand, none of the staff were able to provide any first aid, and no one from the hotel was willing to take any step to try to save the diver’s life. He was still alive when pulled out of the sea but died shortly after from rapid blood loss.
The incident took place on February 13, 2012. 13 and a half minute long video of it is below. Boat attack takes place at around 3:40 – after that the picture is very shaky. The cameraman stopped videotaping and focused on helping his friend, though the camera continued rolling as it dangled off his neck. Don’t watch if you’re epileptic.
