Medical definition; A Panic Attack is a sudden surge of overwhelming anxiety and fear. Your heart pounds and you can’t breathe. You may even feel like you’re dying or going crazy. A panic attack on dry land is already bad, imagine having one 15 meters or 50 feet under water. This scuba diver suffered it under water, and it is just unbearable.
Footage was from a try dive in South Africa in 2015, luckily the quick reactions of her instructor to bring her to the surface after trying to reinsert her regulator saved her life.
Rule No.1 underwater …. if something goes wrong with you or your buddy don’t panic, a calm thought process will give a better chance of survival.
