    Extreme Cave Diving/ Nova/ PBS video

    I'm not sure if this has been posted or seen by all, figured this was the place to post an interesting video.

    Extreme Cave Diving | NOVA | PBS Video

    I find it incredibly eerie at around 10 minutes in Wes Skiles speaking of the dangers of the sport and the potential for fatality of those involved.

    Yeah I saw that video too. I would love to try cave diving one day. But, seeing the dead guy... starts to make you think how bad things can go in a hurry....

    Great Film

    I have never seen anything that Wes was doing as bad.
    What is not a good day to dive?
