    Ah... Welcome back Mike, nice to see you're in a good mood.

    Any stories of escaping by the skin of your teeth again?

    Hi there Dr. Mike,

    if you didn't cheat by looking at the accident/incident threads, your sense of statistics is clearly good. By date reported to Rebreather World we have:

    FATAL:

    Diving accident at Tobermory (18th July)
    Jayne Bloom's Incident (25th July)
    Andrea Doria fatality (31st July)
    North Carolina Optima fatality (31 July)

    SERIOUS:

    Type 2 bend (13th August)


    So depending on exactly when you last posted there have indeed been 4 fatalities. Keep on reminding people, this sport is regarded as too dangerous by many cavedivers...

    Cheers,

    Charles.

    P.S. You last posted on 14th July before today. It has indeed been 4 fatalities....

    Great to see you back!

    I had thought that maybe you were one after not seeing any hair raising stories for a while.

    Hmm - do we know how many ccr dives took place over that period? I would like to see the statistic qualified and expressed as a ration such as for every 10,000 dives there was 1 fatality. Until then i wouldn't be able to tell if it was high or low.
