After 19 hours in the Australian waters, lost, then found divers Allison Dalton and Richard Neely may need a little extra care to deal with the shock of the news from the insurance folks at Divers Alert Network (DAN). ABC news reports that Divers Alert Network spokesman John Lippman says the insurance policy only covers costs incurred after they were found. Appearantly DAN coverage starts at the point when the divers were rescued and not the search to find them. We have contacted DAN will post more as we get more information on this story. Until then, keep the boat in site. More on the story at http://www.cdnn.info/news/safety/s080525.html. A reply and comment from DAN is attached to this story. Click comments above.
