diving for a living is the most terrifying job I know of.
Also: WHO BUILDS A POOL WITH A DEATH DRAIN IN THE BOTTOM? Is this some industrial pool for cooling? WHAT IS THE DEAL? Engineers?
reminds me of a Chuck Palahniuk story:
read at your own risk
That was based on an actual incident. Chuck P also has a story about a kid falling into an insanely hot natural spring right in front of his parents.
All these complex safety measures, yet nothing as fucking basic as the underwater version of a wind sock to let the diver know STAY AWAY?
and holy fuck there is not a big enough "fuck no" I would say to that crew who told me, "Don't worry the gauge is never right."
...you've never gone diving, or swimming other than in a clear pool/tropical seas, have you?
SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE DIVING STORIES CANT WAIT TO HEAR ALL ABOUT THEM
No shit visibility isn't perfect in industrial/commercial bodies of water. Are you saying the conditional benefits of a visible suction indicator isn't worth the massive costs of a bright orange streamer?
I'm sure some hi-viz tape will make all the difference when visibility is between 2 feet and 6 inches.
Divers are the bouncers of the sea.
Solro you're saying ALL UNDERWATER VISIBILITY EVERYWHERE NO MATTER WHAT is between 2 feet and six inches? Yeah, that's definitely not true. In some places? Sure.
You guys are so smart. Go tell the FAA to make airplanes the same way they make black boxes!

Also these are all examples of how the 'buddy system' broke down. Except that first one, oh man what a mess that must have been. Imagine being that third guy prying his dead coworkers out of a sucking water hole.
NOPE. NOPE. NOPE. NOPE. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOPE.
What a horrible but hopefully mercifully instantaneous way to die.
Actually I think that most of these divers slowly ran out of air with the growing realization that no help was coming, and that they would die cold and alone.

When you accept a new job, make sure you take part in a pre-job meeting.

Well that was horrifying.
Seems like a lot of industrial and mining dangers, you really gotta look at the world around you like every single thing is going to get you Final Destination style
Science Hates You.
And this only one of the many many horrible ways divers can and do frequently get killed. Often because of the incompetence of bored people on the surface.
They make serious bank, but you couldn't pay me enough to ever do it.
