Fun until the nitrogen bubble hits your brain.
Fun until the ad agency style editing and annoying music makes you stop watching.

Wait was that one breath jesus!
How did they waterproof the live techno band that was playing in real time?

Hello, one of my primal fears.
Also, hello vid/submitter resonance.
You and me both. I was as scared as a little girl around spiders while snorkeling off of Guam.
I just dunno what's in those large dark underwater caverns.

Looks like a rush to descend into the deep abyss. Wonder how long this took to film with needing to pull out the breather and put it away again.
I suppose it's conceivable that the cameraman let him borrow their oxygen (if they had any) every so often, but I know that this a legitimate sport. I now this because Scientific American Frontiers freaked me right the hell out with an episode about it when I was little.
It was a really dramatic way to learn about the dive reflex and training lung capacity.
This is some really beautiful photography. What a cool/freaky video.
"shot on one breath" by one woman who magically has 5 cameras surrounding him simultaneously and no air bubbles from her breathing apparatus are in any of the shots. Aalso, she manages to get BELOW him before he jumps. Major shenanigans.

The water in blue holes is super stagnant. I wonder if one can be poisoned from the heavy metals that collect in them.
I saw a show about marine archeology or paleontology down in a blue hole cave. The diver scientists had to descend through a layer of some kind of acid at one point. Scary stuff.

IT seems to me that he surfaces way too fast. No, I dunno how deep that hole is exactly, but shouldn't he possibly get decompression sickness. Even in my amateur, shallow dives they tell us not to surface that fast. More potential shenanigans.
No, free divers don't suffer from any decompression issues because they do not breathe compressed air at depth. When you scuba you can't surface quickly because the compressed air you breathed will expand and rupture a lung or bubble in your joints, since its pressure is higher than the ambient pressure of air at the surface. Free divers only have air breathed at ambient surface pressure in their systems, which compresses then expands only to its original volume
You know, as soon as you said that I realized that I knew that. It's been over a year, I think I gotta get back in the water and remember all this stuff. My bad.

Ok, turns out it wasn't actually real: http://www.grindtv.com/outdoor/blog/17914/freedivers+breathtaking+ plunge+into+abyss+caught+on+video/
