This is definitely a case of gross negligence by the boat operator. There is no way that the prop should have been engaged when someone was in the water.

It is not the fault of Holland America and I doubt there will be any compensation from the tour operator nor Holland America. It isn't easy to sue a company in another country. Especially a country like Belize.

My heart goes out to this woman and her family. A sad day.

Take care,
