    My girlfriend and her regular dive buddy did this same dive the day before this occurred. She told me that the current was much stronger than what they usually experience. She had her scooter with her, but her buddy was swimming and had to work his butt of pulling hand over hand at times.

    I am incredibly sorry for the pain you and the community are going through.

    I haven't called around for details because I don't want to be that person that is just asking to tell a story.

    Please let me know if there is a call for regular divers to help in the recovery. We are here and are willing to contribute. I know the OPP dive team is searching and wish them the safest of dives in this time.

    I am not sure where you are, but if you are coming to the area and need anything please reach out

    The missing diver was an absolute legend in the industry. A great guy, who got many dive pros started out on their career. He touched many lives. I'm sitting here in absolute shock.

    Omg, what the heck was he doing in the St. Lawrence? I didn't realize who it was that we've lost.
