Actually the article led me to believe that they were cavern diving. At least they were in the cavern zone, whether or not he was cerified cavern diver was not stated.

I have noticed that a lot of cave divng related incidents occur mid February to mid March. I don't know if its just because more people are in cave country that time of year cuz of the good conditions or what. It got to the point I would not go cave diving that time of year cuz I thought there was bad juju.
