It was yesterday. Both divers ran low on air one diver seen his partner on bottom with regulator out went up and got another tank and retrieved body. All this information is second hand and I have no idea if it's accurate. Don't know any more.

Thanks. The PNJ said it was this morning. Sad story. If the DOA diver was 48 as reported, that hits close to home.

Could have been this am. I heard about it early and assumed yesterday.

It was this morning. I was offshore and heard some of the radio conversation. Seems like it was before 9 am when were hearing the coast guard talking to someone involved.

Get the training and follow and understand what you are being taught. Start diving with someone the same level as you are. Take your time and learn the enviroment and different conditions. Consider Diving nitrox on air tables. Always have a driver in boat at all times.

Last I knew it’s the closest, as there is not one in Pensacola
Believe it or not there are two chambers in pensacola. Baptist and NAMI. The problem is having a qualified team to treat diving accidents. No one wants the responsibility and liaability for treating divers, not enough money in it. The 2 chambers locally are used to treat diabetes.

We heard it on the VHF Sat morning. They did CPR for a pretty good length of time. Sat was a busy day on the radio.

From what I understand the NAMI chamber is not for civilians. I'm a federal employee and we have an agreement with the Navy so we can use it. I have to call and let them know we are using them for coverage. Mobile is the nearest one (for a ways) that will treat divers.
