“Only in the U.S. Would You Try to Blame the Resort”

from the May, 2011 issue of Undercurrent   Subscribe Now

Dear Ben,

In the March 2011 issue of Undercurrent, there was an article about a woman who had lost several fingers in Fiji after a boat ladder had severed them. She is now taking legal action against the booking agent as her last resort. I feel sorry about her accident. However, after 900 dives, I have many times approached ladders that were bouncing as the boat rocked with the waves. Putting one's hand on the upper part of a bouncing ladder where it may slam against the boat is very poor judgment. Maybe rather than looking for someone else to blame, we need to take responsibility for our own actions. Only in the U.S.A.would you try to blame the resort or booking agent. Come on!
