A Cliff Dive to Save a Life
By Harold Hutchison
Airmen deployed to Joint Task Force Bravo in Honduras were on a trip to Costa Rica when one of them fell while climbing, striking his head and falling into a pool of water. Almost immediately, Matt Adams, an Air Force civil engineer, dove in after him.
"I went straight down from where he sank trying to reach him with very short visibility," he said. "I remember clearing my ears several times as I went down, and down, and down. I finally saw him lying on the bottom with his arms stretched out.”
