They kept standing at the chamber entrance every time divers were trying to keep within that pesky 5 minute SI. No matter how many times we told them to be anywhere but there or physically moved them. It was terrible for diving, not to mention they caused some of our dive crew to act ridiculous. I guess they were looking for their 15 minutes of fame...
