    Anatomy of a "HIT"
    by ADM Staff Photojournalist John Rawlings


    When it happened, I was stunned…the hit was completely unexpected because the dives had been so uneventful and simple recreational level dives like we have done literally thousands of times before. The sudden numbness in my right arm had caught my attention…

    Wow. Thanks for posting that Curt. Good reminder that there is no such thing as a "routine dive."
