Heartfelt tributes are pouring in for a Dublin free diver who died while saving the life of a woman in distress at sea.
According to 98fm, 39-year-old Stephen Keenan from Glasnevin put himself in danger while trying to save a female diver in the Red Sea resort of Dahab, Egypt.
It's reported that Stephen suffered a blackout and died en route to hospital, following a dive into water to aid a disorientated woman.
Diving group Vertical Blue has hailed him as "a hero to the end" on their Facebook page.
''Today we received the tragic news of the passing of the strongest and most dedicated safety diver, and Vertical Blue's chief of safety, Stephen Keenan. It seems the ocean takes the best away from us. He was a hero until the end, and died while providing safety for a girl who got into difficulty while freediving in Dahab's Blue Hole.''
''Thank you for taking care of us for so many years Stephen. You will be greatly missed.''
