Diving is a very safe recreational activity. We train, we learn, we practice. We begin with shallower, less stressful dives and work our way up to the more advanced diving skills. We take every precaution, yet sometimes accidents still occur. It may or may not be by any fault of our own. It may have been caused by a mistake, a lesser skilled dive buddy, or because of diving physics which we have yet to gain an understanding of. For whatever reason, the accident took place. Are you prepared if the unthinkable happens?
