[i]STAFFORD: This was after the collar was all on. We had communications with the headset for awhile but then we lost it. We were talking to one of the frogmen but he didn't say anything. The next thing I noticed the frogmen had the "T" handle, climbing up on my hatch to open it. So, we thought we were all vented to ambient but just in case I went ahead and started cracking the hatch and held on to the nylon tie-down lanyard as I was cracking it. When I got it cracked, there was still a small psi and bang!, the hatch just flew to the full open position and jerked out of my hand and it hit the frogman in the head. He suffered a slight cut on his forehead.
CERNAN: The crew did not egress until the spacecraft was on the carrier. We closed our hatches while they bought us up on number 3 elevator and then we egressed.[/i]
