The German tourist rescued after a diving incident off Shelly Beach last Friday died in hospital on Tuesday.
The woman, a 42-year-old medical doctor, was diving at about ten metres when she went into distress.
Paramedics performed advanced life support and resuscitated the diver, who had done over 250 dives, after about 20 minutes.
She was rushed to Margate Hospital, where Roland Mauz from African Dive Adventures spoke to eHowzit about the possible cause of the incident, before she was transported to a Umhlanga hospital.
The diver’s family has reportedly requested a post-mortem in order to determine the cause of death.
