      I am not sure how this death happened but as I was discussing the fact with people who work at Dwejra sadly sad that they believe there is a death trap in Dwejra in as far as when one swims in the Grotta of the inland sea one can easily swim and there are hardly any waves. This gives the swimmer the impression that it is the same outside the cave. When they swim out they do not come back because they had made up their mind to swim to the Blue Hole. There is the danger. The waters there and current are not to underestimate! I suggest that a warning is added with the sign there is of boat rides saying that it is dangerous to swim outside the cave and that there were casualties in the past. beware!.
