Ken, would you say that these recent tragic losses have to be classified as tech-diving fatalities? These are not recreational deaths due to solo diving.
"You can't get hurt on a dive you don't make. Use your head."
Excellent point. Most divers know their limits and how much risk they are willing to take. The sea is a very unforgiving environment that will get even the very best. The daredevil type diver that keep pushing the envelope will be defeated at some point but that is also their right to test those limits. They exist in every sport, they know the risk and live and die by their choices.
