Doubly Fatal Chamber Fire: One Year Later, No Answers

So where's the final report from the investigation? All the buzz in the mainstream media, on Twitter, and in the blogosphere around the anniversary date was about the impending lawsuit settlement. But what the family and the hyperbaric community really want is an answer. What went wrong? Apparently a "blast" dislodged a "tube" and caused an "explosion" or "flash fire." We reported these preliminary findings last July and haven't heard a definitive word since. Last month's video report from the Sun Sentinel doesn't much add to our understanding. How can we prevent such a tragedy from happening again? No one can assure anyone until everyone knows the facts.

[Note: The incident occurred 1 May 2009 at Ocean Hyperbaric Neurologic Center, now renamed Neubauer Hyperbaric Neurologic Center, in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, FL.]
