    Wasn't quite sure where to post this, but a fantastic article from the BBC about a deep cave body recovery. It's a bit long, but pretty gripping. And with unusually good attention to diving detail for a journalistic piece.

    I enjoyed both the article and the movie. I've actually watched the movie a couple of times. Picked up a few more details I missed the first time around. Amazing story.

    In the article they say that the 2nd group did follow the first one after 2 Hours. Its been a while since i saw the movie but didn’t the 2nd group enter from the other side?

    That was part of what confused me my first time watching, and my only complaint about the film. They didn't do a great job of laying out the timeline of the original dive. In the original dive, where the two divers were lost, both groups left from the same location (the frozen lake), 2 or 3 hours apart. In the recovery dive, the two groups left from opposite ends, one from the lake and one from the cave.
