An Air Care team from Orlando take a distressed lobster diver to the helicopter to take him to Florida Hospital. The diver was picked up by the Freedom Star, one of the Shuttle Rocket Booster retrieval ships, on a certification exercise and near the location of a lobster diving boat that radioed the U.S. Coast Guard for help when one of the divers experienced difficulty breathing on his return to the surface. Hearing the call for help, the captain of the Freedom Star offered to help. The ship had a dive team on board, including a diver medical technician, Andy Fish, as well as a hyperbaric chamber. Fish stayed with the diver in the recompression chamber aboard the Freedom Star until the ship reached Port Canaveral where a KSC Occupational Health doctor waited. The diver was stabilized and then taken to Florida Hospital.
