    Two cave divers from Finland died in Plura (Norway)

    Sadly, two divers died in the caves of Plura yesterday. They ran into problems at ~130m. Three team mates made it back to the surface and was taken to the chamber. The three divers are OK.

    New release: The Norwegian diving accident
    02/10/2014 16:00
    In Norway, the incident cave diving accident survived diving team has given the Association scuba diver and Safety Committee Accident Investigation Working Group as shown in the chronology of events and will be published in their wish for. Diver Association does not give information about the identity of the event involved.
    Description Plurdalenin cave diving (Norway, February 2014)
    The plan was to dive into two teams. The first team of two divers (a diver-named below 1 and 2), and the other three of team diver (divers 3, 4 and 5). The teams went into the water for two hours increments. Diving route went Plurasta Steinugleflågetiin, where after the arrival of the purpose was to leave the outfit for the night in a cave and dive the next day back.
    Estimated dive time was five hours, and the maximum depth of 129 meters. The divers had gone through the so-called. bailout of the Vice-gas plan, if used in the rebreather (closed-circuit breathing apparatus) vikaantuisivat during the dive. As well as additional reserve was that the open-circuit rebreather breathing gas tanks.
    Preparation:
    The first team to start making a hole in Pluran the head, and the other team will transport exchange equipment Steinugleflågetin the head. The second team will return to Pluran the head and assist the first team to start scuba diving. After this, the second team to start preparing for your dive and leaves for about two hours after the first team.
    The Dive play:

    First team:
    The first part of the dive was uneventful. After passing strictures that are in 129 meters depth, and taking up the rise from the deepest point of the dive, the diver-two is caught their equipment stenosis, which is about 110 meters below the surface. Diver-2 can not get themselves off, despite its efforts, and will have the same problems with their devices-rebreather. Diver-1 try in every way to help the situation, but in spite of the diver-2 die.
    Diver-1 will then continue to rise towards the Steinugleflågettia. In a situation the elapsed time and place of the event because of the depth, the diver-1 of the total of the planned dive time increases to greater than about five to eight hours. As a result, the diver-1 resources are available for extreme conditions. Diver-1 to leave the last of six meters decompression stops for about 45 minutes to do, but will only be known after a dive without symptoms of decompression illness. Diver-1 is Steinugleflågetiin to wait for the water they saw a diver-3: a
    Second team:
    The first part of the dive is flowing normally. After passing strictures that are before the 129-meter maximum diving depth, and the increase has been commenced, the diver-3 point approximately 110 meters below the stenosis who died diver-2: about Diver-3 attempts to remove the diver-2 stenosis did not work. Next, the diver-3 will take to detach own their equipment, and to push the obstruction diver-2 next, and then starts to yourself to try through the stenosis. In the meantime, the diver-4 has been in trouble with their devices rebreather, and has moved over to the Vice gas. Diver-5 is trying to help the diver-4 days, but the diver-4 die in spite of everything, 111 meters. Diver-5 try to communicate diver-3 for the events but did not get their message across. Diver-3 can be reached through the stricture and to assume divers 4 and 5 are turned back. Diver-3 alone to continue towards the Steinugleflågettia.
    Diver-3 dive time to grow deep part of the events planned for about five hours over eight hours. As a result, the diver-3 resources are available for extreme conditions. Diver 3-point diver-1 to about 12 m depth. Diver-3 leaves the last six meter decompression stop doing for about 80 minutes, and as a result after surfacing mild joint pain. Diver-3 leaves an hour to reach the surface after the climb out of the cave diver-1 with.
    Diver-5-4 turns to the diver's fatality after back in the direction after trying to first get the diver-3's view, by communicating to him. Diver-5's time to grow a deep dive of the event, the less favorable the return route to the dive, as well as on subsequent sukellusskootteririkon due to the planned about five hours over 11 hours. Diver-5 to leave due to lack of resources in the last six meter decompression stop doing 90 minutes, but not after diving decompression sickness symptoms.

    Situation in the after-care:
    Divers 1 and 3, alarming local residents, police and rescue personnel to the scene.
    Diver-5 pintauduttua, divers 1, 3 and 5 of the doctor transported by helicopter, airplane, Tromsø, as well as a doctor to the hospital, where a diver-3 was carried out on two recompression for divers and 1 and 5, just in a shorter one recompression.

    Norwegian police continue to investigate the events, and has started the process of planning for the lift.

    Re: Two cave divers from Finland died in Plura (Norway)

    As posted on the Finnish Divers´Federation's website in Finnish.

    https://www.sukeltaja.fi/content/fi/...1/227/227.html


    Description of the dive in Plurdalen, Norway, February 2014
    The plan was to dive in two teams. The first team consisted of two divers (hereafter “diver-1 and 2”), and the second team consisted of three divers (“diver-3, 4 and 5”). The second team was supposed to enter the water two hours after the first team’s start. The planned diving route went from Plura to Steinuglefåget, overnight in the rented house near the Plura entrance (while gears in the cave), and dive back the following day.
    The estimated dive time was five hours, with maximum planned depth of 129 meters. A bail-out plan was communicated with the both teams, and adequate bail-out gas and bailout rebreathers were carried along.
    Preparations:
    The first team begins to make a hole in the ice at the Plura start site. The second team transports the exchange clothes and gears to Steinuflåget end. The second team returns to Plura dive starting site and helps the first team to start their dive. After this, the second team starts with their own preparations and begins their dive approximately two hours after the first team.
    Dive:
    The first team:
    The first part of the dive was uneventful. After passing restrictions, which are located just before the maximum depth of 129 meters, the team started to ascend. Diver-2 gets stuck in a restriction at about 110 meters. Despite every effort, diver-2 can’t get out, and faces simultaneously problems with the rebreather.
    Diver-1 tries in every way to help, but despite these efforts, diver-2 dies at the restriction. Diver-1 has to continue ascending alone to Steinugleflåget. Due to the excess time spent at the depth, diver-1’s estimated total dive time increases now from five hours to more than eight hours. This uses all the margins in the dive plan. Diver-1 has to cut about 45 minutes out of the last six-meter decompression stop, but survives without decompression sickness symptoms. Diver-1 stays at the Steinuflåget waiting for the diver-3, who was already visible in the water during the last decompression stops.
    The second team:
    The first part of the dive was uneventful. After passing restrictions, which are located just before the maximum depth of 129 meters, the team started to ascend. At 110 meters, diver-3 discovers the body of diver-2. Diver-3 tries to free diver-2, without success. Diver-3 starts to take off own equipment in order to negotiate through the restriction, the deceased, diver-2. At the same time, diver-4 has faced difficulties with the rebreather, and has started using the bail-out gas. Diver-5 tries to help diver-4, but diver-4 dies at a depth of 111 meters. Diver-5 tries to signal diver-3 about the situation, but can’t get message through. Diver-3 manages to pass the restriction and assumes that diver-4 and diver-5 have turned back. Diver-3 continues alone to ascend towards Steinuflåget.
    Due to the excess time spent at the depth, diver-3’s estimated total dive time increases now from five hours to more than eight hours, consuming all the margins. Diver-3 meets diver-1 at about 12 meters. At six meters, diver-3 cuts off about 80 minutes of decompression time, resulting to mild joint pain. After an hour after surfacing, diver-3 begins climbing up and out from the cave with diver-1.
    After the accident to diver-4, diver-5 turns back to the Plura direction. Diver-5 had tried to signal diver-3 to come along, but the message didn’t go through. Due to the excess time spent at the depth, nonoptimal dive route, and later malfunction of the diver propulsion vehicle, diver-5’s estimated total dive time increases now from five hours to more than eleven hours. Diver-5 has to cut off 90 minutes of decompression at six meters depth, after having no more resources to commence the decompression. However, no decompression sickness symptoms occur.
    Aftercare:
    Divers 1 and 3 use a local resident to alarm the police and rescue forces. After diver-5 surfaced, divers 1, 3 and 5 were transferred by medical helicopter and medical plane to Tromsø hospital. Diver-3 undergoes two chamber treatments, and divers 1 and 5 undergo one chamber treatment.
