True Tales of Trouble in the Deep and What You Can Learn from Them.

"One diver, after a seemingly brief period below the surface, discovers that his gas supply has run perilously low. Another, paralyzed, bobs helplessly on the surface, and when a poorly trained divemaster attempts rescue, things go from bad to worse. Two other divers, fascinated by the bountiful undersea life of the Caribbean, fail to notice that a powerful current is sweeping them rapidly away from their unattended boat.,"

These are just a few of the true stories youll find in "Diver Down," most of them involving diver error and resulting in serious injury or death. This unique survival guide explores the gamut of diving situations, including cave and wreck diving, deep-water dives, river and drift diving, decompression sickness, and much more. It shows you how to prevent tragic mishaps through: . . Inspection and maintenance of primary and secondary diving gear. Learning and following established safety protocols. Confirming the training and credentials of diving professionals. Practicing emergency responses under real-world conditions. .

Captain Michael R. Ange is the Managing Director of the Americas Division for the Professional Scuba Association International and contributing writer and technical editor for "Scuba Diving" magazine. During his diving career, Ange has trained more than 3,000 divers and several hundred instructors from around the world..
