100m deeper or just 100m away? Big difference.

If he's on an OW course I really have a hard time understanding how that happened.. So sad

I'm stuck in Malaysia so couldn't see the article. Do they know what happened to him?

100m AWAY... from the spot he was reported lost.... at least that's what the report said.... I think they meant 100m from the dive site...  :(

Abit difficult to find 100m depth at dayang aur area.
So they call it a 'FACT' coz someone made some statements on a 'FACT SHEET'? hummm...
