As they slowly asphyxiated at the bottom of a pond last year, two Navy divers shared something extraordinary: the choice to die together rather than abandon a fellow sailor.
That selflessness went with Petty Officer 2nd Class Ryan Harris and Petty Officer 1st Class James Reyher to their deaths on Feb. 26, 2013 – undiscovered until a Navy investigator reconstructed the events.
The investigation, conducted more than 16 months ago, was released last week to The Virginian-Pilot under the Freedom of Information Act.
