Last breath on the sea bed features Chris Lemons, a commercial diver who was stranded on the sea bed with only minutes of oxygen left to survive.
Last Breath On The Sea Bed | Chris Lemons
Chris Lemons has been a commercial diver for over 14 years and currently specialises in deep sea saturation diving. In September of 2012, a failure of the dynamic positioning system, resulted in his umbilical cord being completely severed. In total darkness, 300 feet on the sea-bed, Chris had just five minutes of breathing left. With no way to protect himself from the freezing temperatures, only quick thinking could save Chris from certain death.
Transcript from ‘Last Breath On The Sea Bed’ podcast
Chris – It’s definitely a profession that potentially can be very dangerous. I’ve been lucky, I’ve always worked in good places. I’m a saturation diver now and you have to do so many years as an air diver. I worked off sort of the west coast of Africa, Brazil and the middle east, places like that. Generally I work for big companies where safety has been paramount. You get to the point where you’ve worked in those situations, you know that becomes second nature to you. I wouldn’t go anywhere and accept anything else now. You know I wouldn’t accept it for anybody I was working with either.
