    Wow! Monumental effort on their part and within the community. Kudos to them. Easy to play arm-chair quarterback here but thinking this will open more than a few eyes on the need to carrying safety gear.

    Fantastic outcome and an amazing effort by all. His statement after being rescued said that he kept all his heavy gear on.

    If this happened to you, would you dump the weight belt and tank (if empty)?

    Depends. As long as buoyancy was no issue, as you never know what may come in handy, I would retain the gear. In the event that my gear becomes a problem, on the surface or underwater, I am more than willing to ditch it, as I was trained back in the olden days. I refuse to dive with any gear that I will not ditch in an emergency.
