It is extremely sad when you do what you love and things like this happen. We all know how dangerous it’s cave diving, but when a real expert dies in an incident like today’s … the whole scuba diving community feels a bit emptier.
As reported by News.com.au , cave diver Agnes Milowka ran out of air and suffocated after becoming disorientated, says a fellow diver who has seen her body.
Dr Richard Harris, a close friend of 29-year-old Ms Milowka, is part of the retrieval team which has been trying to clear the way for police divers to pull her body from Tank Cave, near Mount Gambier.
Dr Harris, who has seen Ms Milowka’s body submerged in 20m of water about 550m from the cave entrance, says she did not become trapped before her death.
Agnes Milowka was for sure one of the best cave divers in Australia, she had recently worked as a stunt diver for James Cameron’s new blockbuster Sanctum 3D, which is now showing across Australia.
