X-Ray Magazine article |  
One morning, sooner or later, you will wake up with a strange sensation—as if some minor and weird changes happened in your body overnight. You are not turning into another Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, but in the recent weeks you have come to find your dives to be very noisy with all the bubbles escaping from your regulator starting to get on your nerves.

The divers were supposed to complete their dive within four and a half hours... Still nothing after six long hours.
