Further to the information below we would like to offer the correction that DOE Conservation Officer Alan Mackay, who was first to respond to the incident, actually pulled Mr. Srilimai and Mr. Hansson onshore.  Mr. Hansson, who had been swimming with the deceased, had been keeping Mr. Srilimai afloat for an extended period near the reef in forceful current and at risk to himself.

Mr. Mackay sustained minor injuries and was treated at hospital afterwards.

We would again like to acknowledge the brave efforts of both Mr. Mackay and Mr. Hansson to prevent a tragedy.
