My thoughts are with the skipper and the guys family. the poor skipper saw the whole inceent and could do nothing for his mate.
Funny Every report I read says people are not sure if he was wearing a Shark Shield.
How about we get the facts before we start the chinese rumour mill?
I recon If your Time is up your time is up..... RIP This is Tragic, Hope his Family is being well looked after
Lesson to us all - try not to look like a seal or a Turtle in the water when returning to the surface.
For What it's worth I heard that he wasn't wearing one which if true is even more tragic given some of his experiences.
This is just like the experience from Cockburn sound, where the diver was wearing a shield - but it was not turned on!
FWIW as we get more experienced we get more complacent, Shallow water BLack out is teaching us this
Hope he didn't suffer. I feel for the Skipper, a mate of mine went through this up near the Abrols
