I musta missed something in the article. It said two divers were pulled from the water on a rescue line and the third climed out of the water. Which one died? Is there more to the story beyond the first page?

Just a quick note on the sumject it is accually the 8th diver to dive this season. Some of you might not know that not only do I own Bodega Bay Pro Dive but I am also a fulltime firefighter with Bodega Bay Fire Department, and I did some training with the Sherrif's department helicopter today and the SGT. said that it was the 8th this year. The north coast is a very dangerous place. I hope all on the list stay safe.

I've noticed a trend in all the recent death reports up the coast. Doesn't it seem to be that age could play a factor? I'm in my mid-thirtys and it's a tough place to dive sometimes.

Yes, the trend was older folks and rough conditions.
For Freedivers it was:
2 Women 36 and 70
3 Men 51, 70 and 59
The SCUBA diver was a man that was 50.
The other two that Lou reported I don't know about.
BTW, if you ab dive and haven't read Rocky's site recently it is a good refresher. It you live in So Cal and want to come up to ab dive his site is really helpful.
