I know I'll be jumped for saying this, but no diver should ever dive alone. This is exactly why there should be a buddy system with EVERY dive. If one diver got in trouble, the other diver could either assist or go for help. I'm not saying this to be mean or to criticize the missing diver; I'm just using this example as a learning tool for anyone who has been thinking about making a dive by themselves.
