Cave Diver Perishes in Weekend Accident
On April 23rd, while caving diving in Pwll-y-Cwm in Clydach Gorge, Wales, Bonnie Cotier failed to surface with her two partners. Her body was later recovered by one of them during the second dive to search for her.
Besides being an active cave diver, Bonnie was very active on the web and with social media, having started her branding company Golden Dog in 1994. Her blog Cave Diving Girl and twitter account @bcotier were followed by many.
Accessible only to divers, Pwll-y-Cwm is one of many caves along Clydach Gorge, located within Brecon Beacons National Park in southeast Wales. It is the resurgence for the water from the Llangattock area caves.
