"I was evacuated from Truk Lagoon to Guam, as the local Chamber was not ready to receive me. The evacuation itself cost $60,000. The Chamber treatment and 5 day hospital stay cost an extra $10,000. Thankfully, as a DAN Member, 100% of my expenses were covered." - Joe, Singapore

Diving Accident Reporting

As part of its mission to improve dive safety, DAN collects and reports on diving fatalities and injuries. To this end, DAN Asia-Pacific is working to collect information concerning dive accidents and incidents within the Asia-Pacific Region.

It is important that divers assist us in this pursuit by notifying us of any dive incident or accident that they become aware of in this Region. If you hear of a dive incident or accident, we would be grateful if you would complete a brief report form and send it to us. If you send us an email we will forward you the DAN Asia-Pacific Diving Incident Report Form. Alternatively you can download the form below, complete it and send it back to the DAN Head Office.
