DRAMA IN THE ABYSS

DRAMA IN THE ABYSS


In October of 2004, Australian cave diver DAVID SHAW set a new world depth record for rebreather diving, plunging to 271 MFW in the famous South African cave Boesmansgat, breaking the previous record of 223 MSW established in the Red Sea in 2003 by Safaga ORCA dive club's Volker and his team.
During the record breaking dive, SHAW (50 years old) came across the remains of a diver which were believed to be those of a 20 year old South African diver Deon Dreyer who had failed to return from a deep cave dive some ten years ago. Fate had it that SHAW would lose his own life some three months later as he tried to recover the remains of Dreyer.

Details of this drama follow as reported from South Africa:
