    Yep


    Which has already been discussed in other threads and probably isn't appropriate for this one, at least at this time until we know if that is what actually happened

    I agree--it would make an interesting discussion somewhere else.

    Info. is limited; how much foam, clear or with some blood, etc..., but it's an interesting piece of info.

    What are thought to be the most common causes of a scuba diver surfacing foaming at the mouth?

    Richard.

    Invetigations is of a high standard and normally lead by Don Shirley. We all want closure on what happened. Thanks to those who have helped keep this tread on track.

    To say "F... Off" to rescuers trying to help does not reflect good judgment. Something not right with him.

    Be careful about taking everything you ready literally at this point. He might have rejected others who wanted to check him out, as he was focused on helping his buddy.

    They both needed aid and to say that to the rescuers is a huge mistake. Most rescuers will move away from someone who says that for fear of being accused of assault.
