    Default Fatality at recovery attempt in Font Estramar, France

    Following the successful rescue of the soccer team in Thailand most of us missed that Marc Sluszny, a belgian adventurer failed to come back from a dive in the french cave system of Font Estramar, the deepest system in Europe with dephts far beyond 200 m / 600 ft on June, 28th.

    Yesterday Laurent Rouchette who was part of a team of 16 divers lost his life while searching for Marc?s body.

    This is the sixth fatality in Font Estramar since 1955.

    Remember: The difference between success and failure in our sport sometimes is just the blink of an eye

    That's a real shame. My condolences to the recovery team, the divers' family and friends.

    On my way to the Land of Enchantment!

    Sad. It reminds me of the attempted recovery in South Africa where the recovery diver died.
