Body of Russian diver recovered from Tulum cenote

Tulum, Q.R. — The body of a young Russian man has been recovered from a Tulum cenote. The body was located by dive specialists after the man reportedly entered the centoe on Saturday, but failed to return as scheduled.

The unidentified 19-year-old man was exploring a 250-meter-deep cave when it is believed he became lost and eventually ran out of oxygen. After a day of searching, specialized divers called in to help, located and recovered the body on Sunday afternoon.

There has not been any information provided as to if he was diving alone or about his level of experience. Members of the Quintana Roo State Attorney General’s Office (FGE) are heading the ongoing investigation.
