In another post someone postulated that if two observers, at different distances, fall into a black hole two things happen: 1. When the first passes the event horizon all information flow between the two stops. 2. When the second passes the event horizon information flow would resume. I don't think I agree with the either postulate. In the first case the observer on the inside would continue to "see" the second observer. The second observer would, of course "see" nothing. In the second case I think the situation would be exactly the same. Just because the second observer is not inside the event horizon does not mean that light can go from No. 1 to No. 2. Wouldn't the photon "leave" No.1 but never reach No. 2? Or would No. 2 eventually run into the photon?
