Therefore, any actions, lessons learnt, recommendations or suggestions in IMCA safety flashes are generated by the submitting organisation, rather than by IMCA itself. IMCA safety flashes provide, in good faith, safety information for the benefit of members, and do not necessarily constitute IM

The remainder of the events in this safety flash focus on diving related incidents.
