Belize Tragedy: Ten Years Later - NBC12 - WWBT - Richmond, VA News On Your Side

Ten years later, NBC12 is taking a look back at the 2001 tragedy in Belize.

On the evening of October 8, 2001, Hurricane Iris devastated parts of the country. As the category four storm made landfall, strong winds and waves forced the ship known as the Wave Dancer to capsize, but left other ships docked nearby untouched. 20 members of the Richmond Dive Club were onboard. Only three survived.

NBC12's Gene Cox traveled to Belize in the days following the disaster. We're providing some of his reports to you now as a way to honor those who died.
