Fiji Sun - - World News -

Bris­bane: De­spite six snorkelling or scuba-div­ing deaths in Aus­tralia last week, tourism and cer­ti­fi­ca­tion op­er­a­tors are re­ject­ing a call for a safety re­view, re­ports Ben Collins.

First came the tragic news last Wed­nes­day that two el­derly French tourists had died on a guided snorkelling trip at Michael­mas Cay, a pop­u­lar tourist spot about 40km (25 miles) north-east of Cairns, in Queens­land state.

They re­port­edly had pre-ex­ist­ing med­i­cal con­di­tions, and suf­fered car­diac ar­rest. BBC
