I'm not sure I'm following your logic here.. You seem to be advancing a theory that it isn't the beginning divers that are getting whacked, nor is it due to poor training.. So can we conclude from your theory that it's experienced diver's that are getting whacked, even though you suggest that I didn't take into account experience when I discuss fatalities????
Furthermore, the 60% number isn't mine, it's Dr. Peter Bennett of DAN fame..
Please see Bennett and Elliott page 240...
Frank, I know it isn't what you want to hear, but those are the facts you are free to do with them as you see fit...
I personally prefer to confront them, talk about them openly and hope that some will open there eyes and stop living in denial...
