I guess the good news is that this was not us...
Recent Deaths of Abalone Fishermen Raises Concerns
POSTED: 9:58 pm PDT May 9, 2008

The deaths of two abalone fisherman along California's North Coast this week has caught the attention of State Fish and Game rangers. They want to make sure abalone fishermen not only follow the law, but safety rules as well... Rough conditions on Thursday may have played a role in the death of an abalone fisherman near Sea Ranch in Sonoma County. Park ranger Ashford Wood described the victim as an "older fella, in his late 50's, got in trouble on the rocks in low tide and initial estimate is that it was probably a heart attack." He was the second abalone fisherman to die in just the past week. Ranger Wood says the first safety tip for abalone fishermen is to get in shape before they hit the water.
We are more careful. No diving with hangovers.
