SANTA BARBARA, CA (September 2, 2019) – Two of the 34 victims in the deadly Southern California dive boat fire were later identified as Andrew Fritz and Dr. Adrian Dahood-Fritz.
 
Andrew co-owned a photography company called AzulOx Visuals, serving as a chief technology officer. He also loved the great outdoors and could often be found with a camera in hand.
 
Moreover, Dr. Adrian also worked as a senior environmental scientist for the Ocean Protection Council in Sacramento. She often traveled to Antarctica for research and study. She also worked to manage California’s network of marine protected areas.
 
Friends also say they loved learning, animals and traveling the world together.
 
Andrew and his wife Adrian had just moved to Sacramento from Taylor, Texas back in April for work. They traveled off the coast of Southern California for a scuba diving trip on the Conception.
 
Their vacation soon turned to disaster when the 75-foot boat went up in flames early morning on Labor Day. The couple was asleep below deck, along with 32 others at the time. All victims below deck were later pronounced dead.
 
In addition, five others who were asleep on the top deck managed to escape by jumping into the ocean. However, they were later rescued by good Samaritans.
 
The victims were later identified as: Neal Baltz, Patricia Beitzinger, Allie Kurtz, Scott Chan, Kendra Chan, Evan Quitasol, Nicole Quitasol, Angela Quitasol, Fernisa Sison, Michael Quitasol, Charles McIlvain, Marybeth Guiney, Lisa Fiedler, Mike Kohls, Steve Salika, Diana Adamic, Tia Salika, Berenice Felipe, Justin Dignam, Daniel Garcia, Yulia Krashennaya, Vaidehi Campbell andSunil Singh Sandhu.
