KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- 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. KSC-02pd1302

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. - Jack Wilcox (at the microphone) answers questions from the media during a reunion with his rescuers at the Hangar AF docks, Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. At right is his wife, Patty. Wilcox reunited with the men aboard KSC's Freedom Star SRB retrieval ship that was in the vicinity when Wilcox suffered decompression sickness on a diving expedition 20 miles off shore in the Atlantic Ocean. When the Freedom Star team heard the call for help, they asked the Coast Guard if they could assist. The ship was out on a crane certification exercise and coincidentally had a diver medical technician and other divers training on the crane. The ship's divers were trained for the hyperbaric chamber on board. Upon reaching the Army dock, KSC Occupational Health physician Skip Beeler entered the chamber and continued the process of helping to stabilize Wilcox. After several hours in the chamber, Wilcox, who lives in Orlando, was airlifted to Florida Hospital Orlando. KSC-02pd1410
