Earlier this month, four European scuba divers went missing off Pulau Tokong Sanggol here: dive master Kristine Grodem, 35, from Norway; British national Adrian Peter Chesters, 46; his Dutch national son Nathan Renze Chesters, 14; and French woman Alexia Alexandra Molina, 18. On April 7, Sultan of Johor Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar ordered all diving activities in Mersing waters to cease temporarily after four foreign divers went missing in the Pulau Tokong Sanggol waters, about nine nautical miles off Tanjung Leman here.

Three divers, Kristine Grodem, 35, a Norwegian, British national Adrian Peter Chesters, 46, and Alexia Alexandra Molina, 18, a French national were found safe. Adrian then told Malaysian authorities that his son did not make it and died after becoming too weak, and his body was likely to have drifted into Indonesian waters. Efforts to implement an anti-party hopping enactment is one of the initiatives under Johor Barisan Nasional’s campaign promises during the Johor state election on March 12. Adrian confirmed with the authorities later that his son Nathen Renze, 14, a Dutch national, had died after becoming too weak to hang on. His body was believed to have been swept away into Indonesian waters and has yet to be found.
