Diver dies in Surigao del Sur's Enchanted River
ANC – Thursday, June 19, 2014


Dr. Alfonso Amores

A professional scuba diver was found dead Tuesday, June 17, after failing to exit the underwater cave at the Enchanted River in Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur.

Dr. Alfonso Amores was with other professional divers putting safety measures for a scheduled TV shoot featuring the Enchanted River.
He had already gone through the river's underwater cave in November last year. Nobody thought his second time would be his last.

"[Amores] was excited because diving in [the] Enchanted River is always a challenge, it's never easy. When you get to get out from there, it's already a big accomplishment for us divers," says Andy Berame of Task Force Kalikasan of Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu.

Berame last saw Amores on Thursday, June 12, when they had their usual night dive in Mactan. He even helped Amores pack for the Surigao del Sur diving trip.

Professional divers said the entrance to the Enchanted River cave is so small that only one diver can enter at a time. This person takes two oxygen tanks down with him or her.

The entry point of the cave may be small—but once you get through, the cave itself is as huge as two basketball courts.

According to Berame, while entering the underwater cave may be challenging, it is even more difficult to exit it because the diver must swim against the current.

"The water does pull you back to the cave. You'd be lucky if the current is not that strong," said Berame.

Amores’ body was found after eight hours of searching.

Amores' brother, Lapu-Lapu City Vice-Mayor Mario Amores, went to Surigao del Sur immediately upon receiving reports about the incident. Amores' wife is expected to come home from the US.

Amores, a reconstructive surgeon, was a licensed cave and scuba diver. He was an advocate of the environment, particularly in caring for the ocean.

A resident of Lapu-Lapu City, he trained the city's Task Force Kalikasan, in charge of monitoring illegal activities at sea. He also spearheaded the creation of sanctuaries around Lapu-Lapu City.
