It’s been just over a week since the devastating dive boat fire off the coast of southern California that left 34 people dead. Onboard were scientists, photographers, diving enthusiasts and a marine biologist who was the trip’s divemaster.
We’re learning more and more about the 34 people who are presumed dead after a devastating boat fire in the Channel Islands on Monday morning. Many in the local diving community know people who were onboard and know the boats themselves.
The bodies of 20 victims have so far been recovered from the wreckage of a boat that caught fire off California’s Channel Islands Monday morning. The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office says most of the victims appear to have been from Santa Cruz, San Jose and other parts of the Bay Area.
