    They transferred him into the sat divers bell. Something like 60 hours to the surface, then a few more chamber rides on the boat.

    In the bell for 2.5 days. DevonDiver's blog post (linked in the thread he started) has links to articles with some more background info.

    This happened a few months ago. Now that is a prime case of divine intervention if there is any. I wonder how his ears were feeling as the ship settled.

    The bell mates under pressure to living chambers on deck so crews can change out. The bell is just the elevator and decompression is in the deck chambers.

    Regarding the hand coming out of the muck, read the stories regarding the divers doing the recovery of
    American Airlines flight 587 that crash in Nov. 2011. They were working in similar conditions and had hands come out of the muck.
