What Robert Laird, the co-founder of International Underwater Cave Rescue and Recovery, means is this: When cave divers get in serious trouble, they usually die. There is no one to rescue, just a body to recover.

For some reason it does not let me submit? Complaining about not including a URL? So here is a dummy URL to satisfy the submission script. []
