    Just watched it, brave and sad all at the same time.

    I suspect it was because the British had team tried the short way, and couldn't get them out.

    That was my understanding too. I just watched this, this past week.... Hardcore with what they need to do, to just be able to get into the water!

    Actual footage yes. They went the long way because they believed it would be easier to pull the dive back the same way he came from rathen then to drag him forward thru the restriction.

    Only weeks ago only they lost another one of their rb team members in a cave accident as well :/

    I watched this a few times since it hit iTunes and Netflix. Balls of steel man..... that dive is big enough as it is, to accomplish everything they did on the recovery is amazing.

    I was saddened to hear of the accident a couple weeks ago. I don't remember seeing the name. Does anyone know who it was that didn't make it? I know Sami Paakkarinen was there and gave out the info on what happened, but I haven't heard anything beyond the news article and the statement he made.

    Only his gear was there. I don't know more than he posted online, though.

    Ah, I misunderstood. Interesting.

    I understand the recent statement from Sami Paakkarinen relates to an accident on a deep dive (200m) at Font Estramar, France on 10.06.2017, involving a dive team from Finland resulting in a fatality. More details on his Facebook page.
