    Any news about this diver? How name is Danny Collins. He is the husband of an acquaintance. I don't know the details except I read on her Facebook that he was found unconscious and entangled on the bottom in Hot Springs. Usually that would mean Lake Ouachita but could be lake Hamilton or even DeGrey. Her was air lifted to Shreveport,LA....which also seems strange.

    I don't know the facts so hopefully someone can chime in with facts.

    Hope he is OK. I struggle to understand how anyone can dive without cutting devices.

    I'm just going off of the wifes Facebook but he appears to have made it. He was in the chamber last night or a little over 5hrs. According to the tests that have been run he has no brain damage.

    Lucky lucky guy. You don't hear about many unconscious divers at depth living to tell.

    First one I have heard of. He should go and buy lottery tickets.

    This is the first story but it doesn't add up.

    Did I miss the part where he went unconscious? It says he saw his wife before being airlifted so I suspect the wife's FB was factually incorrect.....either way I am glad he has "pulled through"

    No, I don't know and not trying to muddy the water. I was just going off her Facebook that said he was unconscious. It sounds like that's not true. Hopefully more will come our.

    There is a posting in the PSD forum with a PSD entanglement with the same name.
