During a week-long diving trip aboard the Hurricane vessel, a fire erupted at approximately 8:30 am local time (6:30 am UK time) on Sunday.

Among the 15 experienced divers on board, three individuals tragically lost their lives. The victims had opted not to dive that day, while the remaining 12 were attending a briefing when the blaze started.

The incident occurred near the town of Marsa Alam, specifically at the Elphinstone Reef in the Red Sea, after the vessel had departed from Port Ghalib the previous Tuesday.
