PALM BEACH, Fla. — A man is suing a dive boat charter company following an accident that left his wife dead.

According to the Palm Beach Post, Sean Flynn of Melbourne filed the suit against Florida Scuba Charters on Friday in U.S. District Court.

His 37-year-old wife, Mollie Ghiz-Flynn, died during a dive trip in March. Ghiz-Flynn and her husband had finished their first dive and were waved over to the boat.

But, the suit alleges, the dive boat operator put the engines in reverse, and both divers were sucked under, with Ghiz-Flynn becoming entangled in the propellors.
