‘Missed beyond words’: British victim of Egypt dive boat fire named as tributes paid

One of the three British passengers who died after a dive boat caught fire in Egypt has been named.

Christina Quinn, 58, was chief executive of St Luke’s Hospice Plymouth, and had a long career in the NHS.

A spokesperson for her family said: “It is with great sadness that we confirm the tragic death of Christina Quinn in Egypt.

“She was a sister, daughter, wife, aunty, friend, and rock to many. She will be missed beyond words.


“We would ask for privacy at this time.”

Chair of St Luke’s Trustees, Charles Hackett, said: “Christina was incredibly passionate about St Luke’s and its place at the heart of the community it serves, and we are devastated to lose her warmth, wisdom, and leadership.”

Mr Hackett described Ms Quinn’s career, having served for six years voluntarily as chair of St Luke’s board.

There she earned her colleagues’ “respect, trust and appreciation”, he said.
