It was about 11am when Mr Putu found Miss Neo's body, he wrote in a Facebook post yesterday.

"Her body was floating about 12 metres underwater, without her regulator in her mouth. The regulator's mouthpiece was also missing. It probably got stuck to something," he wrote.

I understand that information is limited.... but is Mr Putu suggesting the victim chocked on her own mouth piece  ??

Anyway.... RIP....

The article is a great example of just how bad Singaporean newspapers are.

I find it impious to rip private photos out of Facebook and print them... pretty surely without permission of the family or photographer. The speculations are tasteless and full of half truths. Simply put: If a dead diver floats over night along a reef with strong current would I expect the dragging second stage to get caught in a rock and rip off. End of story. May she rest in piece.

the report on the guide's account of the incident is too vague

may the family find peace in this moment of grief.

RIP.

Read it and digest it and we should close it here.

She is a close friend of few of my diving buddies and I went on 1 diving trip with her before.

RIP Vera
