    You can take me out! I have so much insurance coverage that my wife would probably practically be praying for something bad to happen. :)

    so why is the family of Boone suing the Moss family estate. The facts that were written said that Boone was trying to render assistance in an OOA, that type of thing is normally done willingly. And did Boone not break the second rule of diving?, "take care of yourself first"

    Should Radwan not be the one being sued here as the trip organizer?

    Seems that the family of Moss ought to sue the family of Boone for failure to render proper assistance. Why would anyone get sued in this case. It is obviously (as the Brits would say) a case of death by misadventure. Both deceased were participating in a risky sport and dies. Neither was at fault for the other dying, and I can only assume that Boone attempted to render assistance willingly, no one coerced her to stop and help.

    But then, some folks are just greedy....
