Trimix Diver resuscitated in Eagle's Nest

Original story by Rick Gershman.

WEEKI WACHEE – Deep below an algae-covered pond, Eagle’s Nest is considered one of the most breathtaking underwater cave systems in the world. Its intricacies have alternately been described as challenging and dangerous.

Judi Bedard never made it to the dangerous part.

Bedard, 48, a registered nurse at Tampa General Hospital, was pulled lifeless from the waters at Eagle’s Nest on Sept. 11. She was resuscitated and remains in critical condition at a Gainesville hospital.

The state Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission on Wednesday released its findings on what happened when Bedard and boyfriend Rudy Banks of Williston, both experienced cave divers, entered the water.

It was a standard recreational dive on a quiet Sunday afternoon.
