Attached to an oxygen stream he entered the water at 9 am but by 11.40 he still had not surfaced.

Nice to see his workmates were on the ball.

Good thing the compressor had enough gas.  Maybe the government will make a new rule where certain tasks require a observer and Levi big fines for breaking the rules.

he suppose to have constant touch with somebody ashore, even with a string to call SOS (if not another diver with him to help in an emergency).

Probably it's only 5 minutes job to move the hose to new position.

Those 2:40h were way too long before they spotted him missing.

And 70 yo not suppose to do heavy jobs, probably should not dive at all, but supervise and secure others
