I didn't start scuba diving until I was 64 years of age...

Just read an article where Donald Sutherland (actor) almost died after scuba diving for a film he was making. He got a blood clot in his lung and was advised by Dive Master who was supervising him during the film to stop diving. They are saying that diving over the age of 50years can result in embolism.

Read on at http://www.cdnn.info/news/safety/s080202.html   This is the first I have heard of an age limit being advised on scuba diving. Has anyone else heard anything along these lines.
