Appeared in DIVER March 2017HAVE YOU SEEN OPEN WATER? It's a chilling film about two scuba-divers lost at sea after becoming separated from their dive-boat, designed to get divers' hearts racing as they witness the events leading up to the realisation of one of our worst nightmares.
Itâs loosely based on the true story of Tom and Eileen Lonergan, who in 1998 went diving on Australia's Great Barrier Reef, and were accidentally left behind by the dive-boat when the crew failed to do an accurate headcount.
This type of incident isn't common, but it's not that unusual either. A quick Internet search reveals an alarming number of tales of divers adrift in big oceans, and I'm sure many other incidents are never reported.
