The Blue Hole

The number of Blue Hole fatalities is not recorded; one source estimates 130 divers died during the fifteen-year period from 1997 to 2012, averaging over eight per year, another claims as many as 200. - Wiki

The causes of death range from underestimating the diving skill required, the notoriety of the site, underestimation of amount of time required to move through the The Arch, trying to dive with a single tank and the ease at which misjudging depth causes narcosis or decompression sickness.

In short, it ain't as easy as it looks.
