This One’s For Kirsty

The Bells Are Ringing Out_TEMP

Sadly it is now nineteen years since she died – protecting the life of one of her sons.

In 2000, following her appearance in a radio programme for the BBC in Cuba, she took a holiday in Cozumel, Mexico, with her sons and her partner, musician James Knight.

On December 18, she and her sons went diving at the Chankanaab reef, at the National Marine Park of Cozumel, in a designated diving area that watercraft were meant to be restricted from.

Along with them was veteran diver, Iván Díaz. As they were all surfacing from a dive, a powerboat moving at high speed entered the restricted area.

MacColl saw the boat coming, and pushed her 15-year-old son Jamie out of the way, but she was struck by the boat. She suffered severe chest injuries and died instantly.

The powerboat was owned by Guillermo González Nova, multimillionaire president of the Comercial Mexicana supermarket chain, who was on board with members of his family.

Boathand José Cen Yam said that he was in control of the boat at the time. Eyewitnesses said that he was not at the controls, and that the boat was travelling much faster than the speed of one knot that González Nova claimed.

Cen Yam was found guilty of culpable homicide, and sentenced to 2 years 10 months in prison. He was allowed under Mexican law to pay a fine of 1,034 pesos (about £61) in lieu of the prison sentence.

He was also ordered to pay approximately $2,150 in restitution to MacColl’s family, an amount based on his wages. People claimed that he received money for taking the blame.
