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.
Eventually, a more experienced diver was able to make his way over and assist the distressed diver escape the down-current, but then the inexperienced diver rockets to the surface too fast.
This entire event is caught in the following video, watch it below.
