By now most of the readers here will have heard of the Sikorsky S-92 crash off of Newfoundland that saw only one survivor and one body recovered.
Presumably the rest of the 16 men and woman passengers and crew remain onboard in 120m of water.
It is a chilling reminder of what we in the marine industry take for granted. We jump on choppers and small planes regularly to transit to the ships and rigs, without a second thought. As one person said in the articles, it is just like going to catch the bus.
Once again a marine tragedy hits the small communities of Newfoundland, where if a person is not related to another, they have grown up next door to each other.
My condolences and sympathy go to the families and friends of the lost mariners.
