Vomiting

Incident Date

1970-01-01

Incident Description

Filming to 20 just after John Parker found it one diver vomited into gag was if correct able to get to 20 and dive back. Gag was full of vomit at one point and could well have malfunctioned. If gag was taken out of mouth and vomited in water then put gag back much safer you can not breath while vomiting but you need a breath as soom as you have. You can not clear the gag with a breath when you have been sick so you must use the purge button. Slow breathing when nauseous will help stop vomiting.

Lessons Learned

Vomiting can happen for all sorts of reasons but alcohol was consumed be it some time before the incident and so that can not be ruled out as a contributery factor.
