Pretty intense.  I dont know the answer for you but this is worth watching. 


Adam did a Reddit AMA sometime after that episode aired which tells the parts of that story that didn't make the original video. A few years old, so some of you may already have seen it (starts about 40 seconds in).

Thanks for the video.  I think we can all agree that being submerged would be that last thing we'd want to happen.  I cannot recall if we determined the rate of success for those who have been submerged b :think:.  In any case really scary.

I had an 8-week open water scuba certification course. I did 'buddy-breathing' with a 12-year-old kid that panicked, and snatched the respirator out of my mouth before i got a breath in our sharing cycle. I had a moment of panic, but I calmed right down. I guess I MADE myself calm right down. That was in a clean, clear swimming pool. Things probably get a lot scarier in murky, and potentially frigid water.

Luckily I'm fat, so I'm well insulated, and bob like a cork. :D

Also... we have ResQMe's on our car keys.

Panic is a deciding factor in such situations. Or more precisely, the managing thereof.

Easier said than done.

You hit the nail on it's head I think. You MADE yourself calm right down.
I once got my respirator jerked from my mouth by someone who panicked (he lost his own mouthpiece). I must have inhaled out of a bad reflex because I had a mouth full of water and was starting to cough.
At that moment you need to realize that there are steps to take before you can breathe again. This takes control. As you said, you MAKE yourself calm.
It was a real eyeopener, recognizing the beginning of panic and then managing it.

I heard you can administer a sharp slap to a panicking person to make them regain their senses. Probably doesn't work underwater, but just sayin'.  :whistle:

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!
