EL CENTRO — The father of the 32-year Imperial Irrigation diver who died in October during a recovery effort said he is convinced safety protocols in the dive were not followed.

“On Oct. 27, 2018, my family and I lost our son (Jonathan Burnworth), a loving husband and father of two in a routine dive turned deadly,” Karl Burnworth wrote in a letter to local media.
