The US coast guards have got involved into a matter of death of a diver. He was apparently found to be unresponsive while a boat hull's cleaning. He incident took place on the 8th of January 2011 when the man Matt Smock was fond to be unresponsive as much. This was on Saturday afternoon. The unit on the ship in the mean while did everything they could to save his life, even giving him a cardiopulmonary resuscitation as the ship hurried to dock at Pier 9 in Galveston. Unfortunately they were not able to save the life of the young man who was all of thirty years old. He was eventually taken to the University of Texas Medical Branch.

It was the Galveston firefighters who again strived to simply rush him to the medical facility in an ambulance.In a later statement issued by a fire official he went of how the accident took place because of a mechanical malfunction. The man was however declared to be dead at 1:37 p.m. John Florence from the Galveston County Medical Examiner’s Office stated this.

The man was apparently using a scrubbing machine to clean of the ship’s hull. He was also diving a good ten miles from the jetties. The body’s autopsy was soon to be performed which would give out further more details on the exact cause of death whatever it be. As of now there is nothing fishy about the incident and rather to be an unfortunate and plain accident. The Coast Guard which has a Marine Safety Unit in the city of Texas is looking into the matter keeping everything under the scanner. Petty Officer Richard Brahm from the department also stated that as of now things don’t look like there is someone to be blamed for this but rather to be unfortunate as it is. The vessel on which Smock was working was the King Arthur. It is a commercial diving vessel.



There is no dearth of silly accidents that take a lot many lives and which could have been easily saved and even the incident avoided. Fire accidents are among the more common in this category. It is usually because of poor precautionary measure or for that matter a careless and potentially dangerous mistake which have people suffer even fatally in the end. A Belfast coroner was very shocked after getting to know of a fire victim who died due to smoke inhalation. So much so that she has deeply urged people to have a fire escape plan after hearing the inquest of a man who died.

Coroner Joanne Donnelly looking at the unfortunate fate of Newtownards man James Francis, stated that people simply ignore many a things in their lives, which quite often prove to be fatal. For once, it can be impossible to get out of a burning house in total darkness, to cite an example. This is where the coroner urges them to have a better fire escape plan in place at their homes which would help them avoid any terrible tragedy. The eighty four year old man died last May 10.

Fire officer spoke of how he could have saved himself if his back door hadn’t been locked on the outside. The Fire and Rescue Service is thus telling people to be more responsible and take care of themselves. Keep an open vent for the smoke to go out in case of fire and not to mention a fire escape to get out of the burning house. People may as well immediately inform the fire department of the flames.

The winter season this year in 2010 has been absolutely harsh. All the more, for bikers and car drivers who have found treading the roads to be an asking task and full of danger at that. Even the ones who have fitted winter tyres are still in danger of meeting with a breakdown of their vehicles. AA, the agency that provides with insurance covers for the same has seen an ever increasing number of people coming in for a breakdown cover. A good five hundred miles of road area will be covered by millions of drivers over the break.

This is only bound to increase the number of people to be left stranded with their cars in a poor condition. But major problems are with the car starting in the first place, rather than people getting stranded in the middle of nowhere. This is where even the minimal £20 a year, the price of a basic cover, is still worthy enough. Then there are the more expensive covers which cost a big £200. But these are to be opted for by people who are looking at getting the complete package comprising of many things; Garage call-out charge, back up while travelling abroad among others.

Car Crash UK are one of the leading personal injury compensation specialists in the UK.

There are still others who pay a good £350 for a European breakdown cover that takes care of all the vehicles. Then again people would do well to shop from the best by comparing between the various providers and seeing which one of them is giving the best of deals and at the most reasonable of prices. AA, RAC, Auto-National, Green Flag, Auto Aid, GEM Motoring Assist and Britannia Rescue are some of the more popular names that provide with a range of breakdown insurance covers. Auto Aid recently topped a report for giving the best level of customer satisfaction among the others. A poll had most of the people voting in favor of Auto Aid.
