The Day I Cheated Death (Scuba Dive Incident at Moose Mountain Quarry, Ontario)
Posted June 2018, https://youtu.be/R-Byn4Io5s8, Water Temp 41F

Summary:
An uncertified diver posted this event back in June 2018, which occurred at Moose Mountain Quarry, Ontario. It’s hard to tell exactly what’s going on from the video alone, but the video description and comments by the OP since they are both illuminating and confusing at the same time. The OP is a certified diver now. I’m not sure if the panic was caused by N2/CO2 narcosis, over-breathing the reg, or? I’d be happy to hear some observations and opinions. Original video description and key comments by OP included below.

Video Description from the Original Video Poster:
“I'm an idiot, this was my 2nd ever dive (and) WITHOUT certification, I had been breathing incorrectly in some dumb attempt to conserve on air and panicked at 100ft when I was unable to suck in air from my reg which caused me to shallow hyperventilate, so because I couldn't breathe and my partner was already ascending above me. I made an emergency ascent (not even correctly) to the surface, causing my lungs to expand and throw up basically nitrogen upon surfacing. Later Symptoms included a minor headache, Dizziness, Muscle cramps, Chest pain and Ringing in the ears.

Two weeks after this incident. There was another experienced diver who died at the same location in 60 feet of water as he experienced something similar to me.

Before you get too eager and decide to be a condescending ass hat in the comment section. I have been certified and am currently an advanced diver with a solid number of dives under my belt including deep dives. I understand what happened during this dive, opposed to my definition in video which was again still before I had any training, so not need to attempt to give me some personal explanation of what I should have done or what happened. You weren't there that day.”

Nemo Blu3 Electric Hookah Device - Have you seen this?
This new hookah unit caught my eye; the Nemo Blu3 battery-operated device. The unit has a hose meant to be used down to a limit of 10ft or 3 meters and a battery duration of 60 minutes. There are quite a few YouTubers using them out there for lost item recovery, light salvage, and fossil hunting. The unit is not cheap (starts at $999) but has definite use for shallow water applications.

While going down this rabbit hole, I also ran into a muscle-powered hookah device, the Exolung, which I also put in this video.

Scuba Diver Panic from 15 meters - Scuba Diving Incident Analysis
This video was sent to me by a subscriber (thanks, Tammy). I’d seen the thumbnail before, but never the video. According to the info I could find, this incident occurred near Cape Town, South Africa in January 2015. Right at the end of a dive, a woman is suffering from some unknown distress and subsequently rejects her regulator and mask and bolts to the surface from 15 meters. The dive with the camera (the diver filming says that he or she is not an instructor) takes control of the diver to keep her from bolting to the surface and tries repeatedly to stuff his spare secondary regulator into her mouth. Due to the bubbles and struggle, it’s hard for me to see if he was successful in getting her to accept the regulator or not. There were no catastrophic/lasting injuries from this event that I can find.

Big Q to folks out there...what is your experience with trying to force a reg into a bolting diver's mouth?

Marine Biologist Reacts to Shark Movies - Melissa Cristina Márquez
Marine biologist and "shark girl" Melissa Cristina Márquez reacts to pop culture shark films, bringing her significant shark knowledge and experience to bear. Meanwhile, the Big Dog himself, Jim the Scuba Instructor, reacts to her review. We follow her remarks through four classic shark movies: The Meg, Laura Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, Jaws, and Deep Blue Sea.

Just a bit of a laugh, all in good fun. Thanks for proving some interesting and informative source material and being a good sport.

Sorry for the thumbnail, Melissa, I couldn't resist ;)

Cozumel Weight Belt Loss on Deep Dive – Scuba Diving Incident Analysis
On a beautiful wall dive in Cozumel, two divers and a guide enjoy high visibility with spectacular hard and soft corals. One diver apparently did not secure his weight belt properly or the buckle failed, and around the middle of the dive, at 30 meters/100 feet, the belt falls off, causing the dive to lose buoyancy dangerously fast towards the surface. While the diver does little himself to remedy the situation, an alert dive leader comes to the rescue, catching the diver and giving him some ballast for the remainder of the dive.

Kudos to this diver, Bryon, for posting this video for us to learn from.

WTF...Barry the MBU Puffer
We all see lots of viral cat and dog videos all over Social Media. I may have just found the aquatic version. Meet Barry the Puffer. I’ve never seen a fish so responsive to the world outside his or her tanks. Check this out!

The MBU puffer, AKA giant puffer or giant freshwater puffer, is one of 30 freshwater species of puffer and native to Cameroon, Zambia, Tanzania, Burundi, and the Democratic Republic of Congo, specifically the east coast of Lake Tanganyika close to the mouth of the Malagarasi River and the mid to lower sections of the Congo River.

https://www.aquariadise.com/mbu-puffer/
They grow to an adult length of 67 cm (26 inches). Like all of its relatives, the Mbu puffer is capable of inflating itself with water or air when stressed or otherwise frightened. It feeds on smaller fish, mollusks and crustaceans, and snails. Species kept in captivity require a varied diet consisting of shelled foods to help ensure good health and to prevent tooth overgrowth.

The Mbu puffer is just about the most aggressive tetraodon that you can find. However, these fish do learn to recognize and interact well with their owners. If an owner does decide to risk introducing tankmates with the puffers, you will need a massive tank, and the species you choose to share the environment must be sufficiently fast and agile to be able to outswim the puffer.
