In fact, not too long ago, a scuba diver, David Cruci, experienced being run over by a boat that didn't heed his Diver Down Flag.
While scalloping with a group of buddies near Crystal River, David Curci was struck by a boat and received severe lacerations, tendon damage, and broken bones to his feet and ankles. The incident is under investigation but the important thing is that Curci is expected to make a good, but slow recovery. As with these situations there will be a plethora of costs from medical bills, legal fees, rehabilitation, and missed work. Curci is an active member within the Gulf Coast dive community who volunteers his personal times to assist with clubs, tournaments, and marine charity events.
