Every year 80-100 American divers go in, don't come out.
I think it's fair to say that Ron Fuller was doing more
than just diving solo, he was diving solo with a new and
apparently not all together working rebreather. The oil
rig incident points more to bad buddy diving practices. Same
for the one in Laguna. A buddy that signals a problem should
at the least be escorted to the surface.
One fair reason for Frank to ask for a recap is that
all of the 'facts' we have were at the time of the incident.
I don't know if any of the events discussed an eventual
autopsy to check for heart failure. Buddy or not, a heart
attack is likely to kill the diver.
