    Re: Accident on the Doria

    RIP to Steve Slater and condolences to his family and friends.

    Even the best bailout setup and/or the experience level of the diver won't help in any of these cases:

    A severe medical problem on it's own (without any equipment cause whatsoever).
    A severe medical problem induced by a (catastrophic) equipment failure.

    From what I read somewhere there has been mentioning of an equipment malfunction.

    He was diving a rebreather.

    So the burning question remains: what was that failure? Is something known about his equipment (including bailout) setup?

    Maybe lessons can be learned from this so further tragedies can be prevented?

    precursor sign? i'm not doctor but i believe by prevent if you are 'physic bad conditions''
    for diving on a wreck like that by example don't dive ! and i don't believe that it was idiot diver .

    bad training and/or bad certification ? by a true Professional or a amator?

    Maybe obsolete materials ? it's sad for him and its family and friends..

    Is the "stuck inflator" a presumption or fact?

    That could certainly complicate things and something to think about.
