Knowing about this lady after watching the movie directed by James Cameron – Sanctum.
A short intro for the movie, because I feel it is not bad and inspired to watch it.
The movie is real story filming inspired by Andrew Wight’s cave diving experience that lead to a cave incident that trapped 13 cavers in one of the worlds largest underwater cave system in south-eastern Western Australia, Nullabor Plain. The incident happend when heavy storm hit the top and landslide covered their entrance/exit. But fortunately they have make it out (Refernce: http://sh.my/NE1dn).
In the movie there are some people die and only one survived. It have screened about the human reaction on fear/panic when situation is not in their possession. Also showing how human have their choice, how they choose it despite of advices available, and what consequences they are facing.

Personally I feel the movie is good, because I like movie that come along with value of life that we can learn (some more is from real life experience), but the rating is bad out there, hmm, don’t care =P
now, let’s back to Ag (shorts for Agnes Milowka)
She is actually a stunt actor in this movie, but unfortunately died because ran out of air during a cave diving expedition on 27 February 2011 (Reference: http://sh.my/GyReG). This is a very sad recall when watching the film. Somehow, her death recall me about Steve Irwin.
After searching more information about her because of my curiousity, I’ve found that she is actually a very active and inspire person to be. She have lived her life to the fullness of what she want it in her way. I believe Agnes’s adventurous life is nurtured from the way her parent grow her up, where she have told about family motto “Pasja, Przygoda, Ryzyko“, that means “Passion, Daring, Adventure”
Along her life, she have few publications, have done over thousands of diving activities, co-assist with National Geographic Bahamas Cave exploration (http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2010/08/bahamas-caves/todhunter-text/1), and more.
