    I was watching quite a cool documentary about cave diving archeologists, when I bumped into the following quote that absolutely shocked me:
    "there's as many as one out of ten rebreathers sold, that people have died on".

    Is that for real?

    (I'd link to the documentary but I haven't earned the right to put URL's in posts yet, apparently)

    I heard that Jill Heinerth said that. I don't know, but if she said it, I'll believe it (at least for now).

    I believe that comment was taken out of context and the back story ended up on the cutting room floor. I think she was referring to a specific model that was sold a while back, where the fatality rate was around 10%. The CCR fatality rate is way too high, but it's definitely not THAT high.
