It was a steaming hot March afternoon in Weipa, a mining town on the Cape York Peninsula in Far North Queensland, Australia. At a safety course, 28-year-old mine worker Todd Bairstow couldn’t wait to knock off, treat himself to an ice-cold beer and go fishing.

See, crocodiles lurked in the murky waters... *Thinking of you all, and hope you're staying safe and well in spite of everything Covid-19 is throwing at us.

The instructor strapped Chris in, then they ran off the edge of the cliff together. But as soon as Chris' feet left the ground, his body sank straight down and he knew something was terribly wrong.

Knocking off after a hard day of work as a labourer, 32-year-old Joe Green, from Indiana, in the United States, was looking forward to an icy cold beer.   Meeting his mum and brother for dinner and drinks, he planned to head home around 10pm.
