Since I was there the day this guest was making her first deep dive and witnessed some of the fallout, I wondered if maybe some feelings about some of the staff are getting mixed up with some very serious accusations. The "bends" are a medical condition which can be diagnosed. The ascent was a decision the guest made on her own because she thought she was out of air. Nobody told her to go up without making a safety stop and she should have. She had plenty of air.At the surface, her tank gauge showed 60 Bar. This sounds like a simple case of diver panic. She was taken to the hospital and there were no signs of decompression illness (the bends). Maybe her irritation at feeling ignored during her "knowledge review" and not being given an alternate mask before the dive put her in a bad mood. This is not an ideal condition to be doing your first deep dive. Every diver knows that ultimately diving decisions are up to, and the responsibility of the diver. If you panic and decide to "bail out" you are not remembering the basics that you were taught in open water. It's advisable for everyone coming to a new place to dive, especially if it's a place with challenging diving (strong currents for example), to take an easy acclamation dive before attempting a something you've never tried before. That said, diver panic is ugly and it happens too often. It's one of the most difficult things a dive master and instructor face. It often places them in a dangerous situation.
