Tragic, we should learn from this if the story is true.

Very sad story.

This quote, however, makes me scratch my head: " (they) went to a restaurant where they had dinner and cocktails between 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. Friday in Ocala.

After dinning, the five returned to the place they were staying, a red log cabin at the Forty Fathom Grotto, 9487 N.W. 115th Ave. Around 1:30 a.m., they decided to do a night dive".

This violates many rules of diving and seems careless to me...

Be very skeptical of anything that concerns diving that comes from a reporter.

Also, if they were only out between 8 and 9pm there's not much time todrink a lot, especially with dinner thrown into the mix.
