Stashed in: Hero!

Even for a search and rescue diver, this must be pretty close to a worst case scenario: groping through a dark crowded overturned ferry to recover hundreds of bodies, many of them children, while worried about your own air hose. Sounds like a guaranteed recipe for PTSD to me but they must do it to bring any semblance of closure to the families of the deceased.

Ugh, how awful.
