Pro Divers

Got this fun message today:
   The variety of jobs that utilize Scuba diving is as intriguing as it is surprising to me: police work - public safety and search & rescue, zoo keeper, performance art... The article that accompanied this photo was very interesting:
   "“During the show, there are 14 divers in the water, including four artist handlers and two divecomms,” says Soncini. “The divecomms are on full face masks with a hardwire communications unit. The divecomms relay information about the show to a platform called the crow’s nest that overlooks the pool, and to stage management which maintains the continuity of the show nightly. The artist handlers are responsible for swimming them either on or off stage underwater or to their next cue.”  Wow
