|As many of you are aware at this point a tragic accident occurred on our expedition yesterday. Our hearts and souls go out to the family of the diver that was lost. Words alone are not enough to express my pain and sympathies. I want to thank all of you who have expressed your prayers and support to the family and those of us on board yesterday. I also want to say thank you to the Beaufort County Sheriff's Department, Burton Fire, EMS, DNR, and Beaufort Water Search and Rescue. Your professionalism, your concern, and your caring made a difference to an unbearable situation. I would also like to acknowledge the bystanders become samaritans that assisted from the fishing pier and their private vessels. Sea Island Divers will be closed while I try to wrap my heart and mind around this horrible situation.
