Report: Lack of communication contributed to Eglin airman’s death

Published: Wednesday, March 20, 2013 at 01:41 PM.

He had suffered extensive injuries and died instantly, the report stated.

Investigators found no medical or environmental conditions that contributed significantly to the incident, and everyone involved had required training. Knowlan did nothing to contribute to the accident.

The report states that procedures did not require specific calls about the number of students in the water, and that the job of the safety observer lacks a standardized qualification process.

It was unknown late Tuesday whether any changes have been or will be implemented in response to the report.
