CAIRO, Egypt (AP) – An Egyptian medical official says two Polish scuba divers were killed when they were hit by a speedboat in the Red Sea resort city of Sharm el-Sheik.

The official at the Sharm el-Sheik hospital, Ibrahim Hassan Ali, says the bodies of a Polish man and a woman were brought to the hospital. He says the Polish embassy in Cairo will be notified of the Friday deaths.

Hospital authorities identified the Polish victims as Jona Kosic, 45, a man, and Wizo Kosic, 43, a woman.

Fatal scuba diving accidents happen occasionally in the Red Sea, where thousands of foreigners come annually to scuba dive because of the water’s famous coral reefs.
