A young scuba diver has a frightening experience while diving as he is caught up in a down-current.

Ok so, his otherwise enjoyable dive went from good to bad fairly fast.  As  the diver made his descent below the surface he was overtaken by a strong wall down-current.

At about 3:30 into the video clip the diver gets caught up in the down-current.  About a minute and a half later you can hear him crying for help. Fortunately he wasn’t diving alone and other divers were also caught up in the strong down-current as well.  Notice … the air bubbles were not even easily floating to the surface.
