    If your refering to people trapped in motor vehicles don't worry about it. They hold a lot of air in the movies and TV but reality is quite different.

    If for example you did happen to have a concious person trapped and you did get them out, chances are neither of you would make it to the surface concious or alive.

    Yes, in movies the laws of physics and reality often exceed the breaking point. So in your experience, would you say PSD is almost exclusively body recovery?

    If so, the pony would strictly be an alternative airsource for the diver and not an aide in rescuing a victim.
