Lost his life while diving on the steamship Empress of Ireland.

"Edward Cossaboom, became the ship's first diving fatality when he lost his footing on the hull at 75 feet and plummeted to 140 feet. Cossaboom's sudden plunge created a deadly differential between his air supply and the ambient water pressure." - from the July, 2004 issue of Undercurrent
