Thank you, Bert, for posting this.
For those who haven't read the Union Trib article, the DDRC Report concludes, I'm quoting, the fatality could have been prevented:
1. If Tegner had maintained her gear in such a way that dropping the weights could have been accomplished.
2. If she had been diving with less weight.
3. If she had stayed with her diving partner
4. If she had managed her air and her dive profile in a way that would have left adequate reserves for a decompression safety stop and buoyancy.
