    Blue Grotto, Florida

    Any new developments on what caused the guy taking his CCR cave course to pass while diving in the cavern section of the Blue Grotto?

    There are a few threads out there with some basic information, but speculation doesn't have a place here.

    Re: Blue Grotto, Florida

    according to the RB_FATAL_ACCIDENT_DATABASE_100725 this happened:

    A male Cave CCR student died in Blue Grotto today (April 15 2016) during a 'black out' drill.
    The unresponsive diver was found floating while the instructor was still at depth.
    The usual information blackout seems to be in place.
    The instructor was Salomé Wiedmer from Switzerland
    The rebreather was a JJ
    The mask was blocked by a neoprene cover
    The O2 was off. There were marks on the tank that could indicate a roll off, but it's not really known.
    The instructor and surviving student were trying to help the deceased when they were spotted on the ceiling behind the air bell
    A number of divers assisted in pulling the diver out, cutting him out of his gear and doing CPR


    When looking today i could not find Salome Wiedmer in the JJ-CCR instructor list on the official JJ homepage: http://jj-ccr.com/instructorsdealers.aspx

    She used to be a JJ dealer and instructor.
    Now no more. I read somewhere that JJ cancelled their business relationship due to some unspecified irregularities prior to the death of her student. Appearantly she's proof of the old saying that beauty and brains are seldom found together.

    You know Michael, I think you just stuck your foot in your mouth. Hope you bite off your toes, too. Wonder if "the saying" applies to guys, too. Which makes you what???
    Considering that this is an idiotic statement, it certainly makes me speculate about the rest of you...

    sorry for my political uncorrectness, but my experience has often been that beauty and brains are seldom found in the same body and I have certainly not been the first person to notice that.
    If you have more than average smarts and good looks, congradulations but remember you are not the norm.
