The article makes it clear that the DEVICE was not at fault in any way. But the protocol followed by the GEOS folks appears to have been grossly negligent, from a SAR point of view. If there are no "terms of use" or contract considerations, I would suspect a substantial wrongful death action is going to change their protocols if they haven't already.

Let's not forget, government SAR agencies have dropped the ball at times too.
