Marine divers, Howard Spensley and Charles Meehan, were ordered into the water to recover the end of a broken pennant wire which was attached to one of the anchors of the drill rig, Ocean Voyager. Their task was not unlike the one Christopher Broady and John Clarke were ordered to perform in 1974.

He told his diving supervisor, Mike Spencer, that his chest felt like it was “full of air.” Spencer followed procedure and recompressed Dimmer back down to 100 feet where his pain was completely relieved. But when his symptoms continued to reoccur…
