    That is what this post was about when it was originally posted. Thanks for getting us back to earth. Enough with this lawyer and cop bashing. We all know that all bad lawyers are just working for the bad cops, because that what they do....take money from whomever will pay them. Lucky for us there are alot more good cops out there than good lawyers.

    This post was about a dive accident...lets leave it at that.

    My prayers are with the diver, her family, the crew, and all those involved. I have been involved in an incident (non diving related) where I helped to assist, as did others, in the resuscitation of a victim. For those of you who have not done so, you have no idea what they are going through. All I can do is wish the best to all those involved. May God be with them always.

    Do we know what caused her to black out? Did she have a medical condition?

    Saving his company from a HUGE lawsuit. Correct me if I am wrong, but those uncertified may NOT be given tanks with air? Now it is true that the wife was under the husbands supervision, second problem. He was not certified to monitor her. We may never know what happened, but the husband takes some of the blame as, as a diver, he should have known better. The company takes blame for renting to him (even if he lied and said it was all for him, when the boat went out and she was with him, they should have asked for her C card and NEVER allowed her to get suited up). I feel for her and her family, but this case needs to be severed and tried with the husband as one defendant and the shop (and the employee) as the other set of defendants. Even I, who would have made a few errors (turned off the air/or left it on, still don't know which is right) but I would have segregated her gear and CERTAINLY wouldn't have washed it with a police officer telling me not to. If anyone should ever have their C cards pulled, its the husband, the dive shop and the instructor who tampered with evidence. God, what an @$$!!!!!!
