The personal representative and wife of a Kentucky man, Burton Stodghill, have filed a lawsuit after he was fatally injured while scuba diving in the Bahamas. The plaintiff alleges that on March 2, her husband was a guest at the Bimini Big Game Club Resort and Marina and participated in a dive. The plaintiff alleges that the decedent was allowed to dive without any instruction or briefing and without a dive partner, and subsequently drowned.

Catherine Stodghill filed the complaint on June 2 in Broward County, Florida, against Hankey Group, doing business as Bimini Big Game Club Resort and Marina; Neal Watson's Bimini Scuba Center; Neal Watson Undersea Adventures Inc.; and Neal Watson Inc., alleging negligence. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because they allegedly allowed the use of a dive boat without first aid equipment on board, allowed dives to be conducted by improperly trained dive masters, and failed to provide spare emergency scuba tanks.
