Mine Clearance diver, the job for me?


Heard that Derek had taken over from that clown Terry Hall; step in the right direction.

SitRep from site is not good. Dulam divers located the wreck. Found that saturation control has been ripped away and the HRC remains mated to the system. Rescue divers have been tapping on the system hull but have had no response. Diving aborted early hours 22nd because of high winds and seas.



Sad days for the commercial world. Can't believe it's got no publicity.

Just had an update from Qatar. No survivors from the sat-team. Rescue diver can see three unmoving divers in one of the (unflooded) chambers. No movement and no response to repeated tapping. All presumed dead. Rescue operation is now body recovery.
The worst result. Poor guys. Condolences to family, friends and colleagues.
