Arizona Officer Drowns, Dies

Daniel Forchione, a 15-year-veteran of the University of Arizona Police Department drowned while he was on a vacation with his family in San Diego.

The 46-year-old officer was reportedly an experienced diver who went out with two other divers whom he later got separated with. Initial investigations show that he took off his oxygen tank but was still wearing weights and that he may have panicked.

This unfortunate accident left his wife and 8-month-old daughter with tremendous grief and so, the risk in diving should be taken seriously by everyone.

To avoid these drowning accidents, one must be briefed with all possible scenarios and the ways in which he could resolve them.
