    His name is Daniel J. Warner and the description of the events leading to his death while Scuba Diving with 10 other people is a complete fabrication of the facts of negligence of those people providing the Scuba Diving Excursion Services and to avoid negative publicity to tourism in Costa Rica. This is hack journalism at its worst.

      @billyanglea:disqus Please drop us a line at [email protected], or call us in Costa Rica at 011-506-5014-4717 or our USA number (that works most of the time) at 1-818-745-6508 and ask to speak to the editor (myself) Tim Williams. We work hard to get the facts straight here but this was a breaking story yesterday and the account we have was provided to us by the press office of the investigate body in charge.

      • Billy Anglea

        Tim, I will be happy to put you in direct contact with the people traveling and diving with Daniel J. Warner once I can confirm that they are out of the country.

        • // Timothy Williams

          Thank you. You likely received a personal email from myself just a few minutes ago, as well.

          • Billy Anglea

            Exactly my point Tim. If the “officials” are responsible for the gross misstatement of the facts, I have to wonder what exactly they are trying to cover up in this death, for whom and why? Until I know for certain that Dan Warner’s traveling companions and his remains are out of the country, I don’t believe they are safe.
