    Is anything more known about this accident by now? It seems so strange and unlikely that two experienced cave divers die in the same dive.

    The report isnt very specific, it just says the diver got stuck, had problems with the RB and died.

    Could it be the increased CO2 generation during the struggle to get past the narrow passage that caused this? From what I learned by reading about RB-diving physical excertion at depth is quite dangerous.

    The Facebook page for the the documentary mentioned in the BBC article, https://www.facebook.com/divingintotheunknown/, has the latest information on screening dates and DVD/Bluray release - it's currently screening on the film festival circuit and available on DVD/Bluray in Finland.

    From the reviews so far, it seems that it does a great job of telling the stories of both the accident and the recovery operations... If/when it is released in the U.S., I think that I will have to go see it...

    Yes, film tells quite well the story about the accident and recovery project. Had opportunity to see the film. Quite some lesson to be learned from.
    But need to say the published description of the accident with the reports from divers involved tells everything that is known about it. So if you read it only recovery part is new.
