Bodies Recovered in Subic Bay

The Philippine Star is reporting that both bodies have been recovered from the engine room of the USS New York. The divers were Tin Shun Chuen from Hong Kong, and Steven Brittian, who was an instructor at Johan’s in Subic Bay. At this stage it is unclear what happened. On a personal note, I’m very glad the third diver is OK, since he’s a friend of mine.

Our sympathies to the family and friends of the divers involved.
