Did you read what the last praphs of the epilogue
said? It was the same for both decisions;

"And so at the bottom of one section of the North
Wall, off Grand Cayman Island, lies the skeleton
of a once young and beautiful woman. The pressure
on her bones is 1.5 tons per square inch,
compressing them to maximum density. Over her
torso rest a non-biodegradable buoyancy control
vest, wet suit top and bathing suit. The fish of
the sea have no interest in these synthetic
objects.

Surrounding her slim pelvis is a webbed belt and
its metal buckle. Attached to the belt are four 4-
pound weights. And tucked away inside the pockets
of the skeleton's vest are an additional 8 pounds
of lead weight."

Warm caribe dive in minimal neoprene top, a diver
of slim build with a 24 lbs of weight on her.
Overall inexperienced and on a deep dive. It was
an incident waiting to happen.

Does this sound familiar to anyone?
