, vivacious and courageous cave diver, was found dead
last week in Australia's Tank Cave.
Milowka was an accomplished, charismatic, and widely-respected diver, who recently worked as a stunt diver on the James Cameron film Sanctum (which she reviews here
). Her body has been recovered
550 meters from the cave entrance, in an extremely narrow section that had to be widened to facilitate removal (videos of Tank Cave: 1
). The exact events that led to her death will likely never be known, but there is speculation
that she may have become disoriented during a silt out and run out of air. Recovery divers say that she remained calm
until her final breath. I made a post
about Milowka only a few months ago. She was 29 years old.
