    First: Apologies, I couldn't decide which forum this was best placed within - but I think that many will enjoy watching it.

    Three days after the sinking of the tug 'Jascon 4', off the Nigerian coast, a commercial diver enters the wreck to recover bodies. He finds a survivor (3 days at 30m)... the reactions are priceless.This is real life drama better than any movie!

    great video, thanks for posting.

    I am wondering though, sounds like a lot of helium for a 30m dive

    How do they manipulate those umbilicals in that wreck environment?

    The divers were saturation divers and the operator was "probably" scrubbing CO2 from a closed loop at the surface to keep the cost of helium down (and give a much clearer head in that environment). Cave divers in FL will sometimes opt to dive 30/30 for WOB and a clearer head.
