Hey Folks,

By the way....I spoke with one of the "Helldivers", the dive club some of these guys were affiliated with, and they said that the data collection monitor showed the diver that tried to find his lost partner had hit 270 feet.

that is hear say, as I got it verbally from one of the HD's that know of this story, so it may or may not be accurate

You know as much as I do if you read the article. the letter was actually written by the Diver's boat Captain and diving buddy.

anything else would be conjecture, but I think it would be reasonable to suspect depth could've played a contributing factor. I think a lot of those guys over there do some really deep depths bounce diving for one quick shot with straight air and Aluminum 80's. If that was the case here, it clearly provides no room for errors.

Heard the Coast Guard last week on the radio about a diver. Didn't sound good then. Sorry to hear the outcome. Condolences for the family and friends.

The dive buddy posted his story on FB. There is a "tribute to mike reed" page with the story and a way to donate to the family
