Whatever that guy finds down there, I hope to God he doesn’t bring it back up.

    First thing i would have done was gotten rid of that snorkel! Can you imagine?

  • Lawrence Panis

    That is one brave mother fkr. That's some scary shit!

  • Carlos Daly Aurenty

    Is hard to take much info on it because the noise of the wind, but for the way they spoke on the video, this was shot in Argentina. In fact, at a moment, the camera guy said: don´t get in if it is quicksand

    • southernmost

      Nope, he said " It looks like quick sand "

      • Nishtai

        Actually, he said "That IS quicksand".
        By the looks of it, this was shot in Nahuel Huapi lake, In the Border between Río Negro and Neuquén, in Argentina. This is how it looked after the Puyehue volcano in Chile blew a shitton of ash into the air, and it came pouring down onto everything

    • weaksauce

      ACTUALLY he said "It looks like Bisquick"

      i think maybe they were just trying to get some delicious baking ingredients for the home. Everyone knows Argentina loves cookies. C'mon now guys.

  • bukssna

    How the hell did this happen?

    • This.

      Gonna go out on a limb and say this is what the ocean surface looks like after a volcano erupts.

      • santia

        yep, thats exactly what happened. This is in Argentina! A Voclano erupted in Chile and the wind carry all the ashes kilometers away. A lot of Patagonia surface was covered in ashes

        • Lev

          It's a cool looking phenomenon, but I don't see what makes the contents of the lake under the surface any more frightening. Just because it's a regular lake with ash on top doesn't mean there's a dinosaur underneath. Or does it….?

          • Nishtai

            There's nothing frightening in the Nahuel Huapi lake. That is, of course, if you don't listen to the legends that claim there's a goddamn dinosaur called "Nahuelito" living in the depths of the lake, which, by the way, is over 500 meters deep.

            • This.

              It's crazy to see how thick the ashes are… he's throwing it around and still not hitting water.

              • Nishtai

                If memory serves right, there was around 1 meter of ash on the lake's surface, all over the lake, which is a big one. So, yeah, über-crazy

  • brandon

    This seems similar to when Chuck Norris swims in land.

  • Ben

    This is where chinchillas bathe.

  • lukas

    this is frome argentina and the Ashes come Frome chile volcano

  • Muadieb

    Surely he wouldn't be seeing much under the surface would he? It looks as though there are at least a couple feet of ash built up. I'd like to see a video transitioning between out of water to beneath that muck.

    • myself

      It would be cool to see, I would expect it to be pitch black though.

      • Muadieb

        That's what I was thinking. Bring lots of dive lights.

    • asd

      you kinda makes it sound like it would be clear blue water underneath

      • Muadieb

        I doubt it would be clear at all… Just curious since that much sediment seems to be floating on top and some volcanic material is buoyant, it may not be as murky.

        • Nishtai

          Actually it was pretty much clear water underneath. the ash cumulated on the surface, turning into a floating paste, so not much of it really sank in the lake. But, as "myself" said, it'd be pitch black

  • Henry

    yall niggaz be gettin in the lake after i be ashin my blunt. dayum.

    • Cooper

      What about us honkeys? Can we be gettin in the dayum lake after you be ashin your blunt, too? It looks like it may be fun for everyone.

      • Spelling Police

        I prefer the term "cracka."

    • BOOM!

      Can the Azn's come too? Then it will be a good party with a theme song that goes "black and yellow, black and yellow"

  • Amir

    why the hell would take a snorkel diving in that shit?

  • southernmost

    Why even go in there at all?

  • The Andychrist

    This is what happens when James Franco smokes unattended.

  • RetiredChief

    I've been diving for 24 years and this guy looks like a complete amateur. First, you ALWAYS have a dive buddy. He should not have gone under by himself. Second, that layer of ash looks pretty thick so it's going to block out all the sunlight and it's going to be dark below the surface. I didn't see a dive light attached to his BC. Third, his regulator should have been in his mouth as soon as he started to wade into the water. He can't see the bottom and therefor is uncertain of his footing so if he slips/trips and goes down at least he would have an air supply. Plus he's dragging it in the ash so it's getting clogged before he even puts it in his mouth. You can see him trying to shake it out at 0:55. This is a perfect example of why diving accidents happen.

    • Static

      at least hes filming it for our entertainment! lol

      this is from at least a year ago (although I thought older than that….)

    • Mark Poli

      I agree. I've been diving for a long time as well and I couldn't help shaking my head the entire video. This has disaster written all over it.

    • Julio Cortez

      I've never gone snorkeling, but if i was going to snorkel in that stuff i would have had the regulator and goggles ready to go and on before i got in. Its just a little common sense, but i dont know wtf this guy was thinking.

    • whale hntr

      when i travelled down there for many months, it was easy to see the way they think down there, from either education quality and/or length, that this guy could have easily been chilean/agentinian. lack of forethought will keep that country in the dark ages for sometime yet, nice place, nice ppl mind u, i felt safer here than in usa

      • Nishtai

        I am from Argentina, and, just like you guys over there, we got our fair share of morons that drown for not taking precautions. Nothing to do with education, or upbringing, just plain ol' stupid. And we're not in the dark ages, thank you very much :)

    • Simon

      Could have been worse. He could have been carrying a piano.

    • Tommyknockers

      I've never dived before except at the local swimming pool to get a badge in boy scouts 20+ years ago. But my common sense had me thinking the same thing.. no light, regulator not in his mouth and he's stumbling around almost falling over.. I kept thinking this would end like the cinnamon challenge.

  • Javier

    Thats Nahuel Huapi lake, in Bariloche, south of Argentina.The volcano erupted ash for 6 month.

  • bustanut

    that WAS a good regulator, now its crap

  • seldomseen

    love the S.O.S. signal in the background…

  • TCSthesecond

    I think i just watched a snuff film

  • CoolHandSpook

    "Artax! Fight against the sadness! You're letting the sadness swamp get to you!"… no? anyone? no one here went straight to the Never Ending Story?

    • theSidetracker

      Oooh…I didn't put you brought me there. I loooved that movie when I was little.

    • Never ending story

      Thought it was atreyu

    • Nes

      Umm isn't it atreyu?

      • Nishtai

        Atreyu was the kid. Artax was his horse, which was sinking in the mud because he despaired

  • john

    did he die?

  • Anthony Hadley

    where is this lake. I'm totally going

    • Ryan

      No you're not.

      • Nishtai

        You can go whenever you want. Ash free by now, though. So no ashes for you :)

  • MrUpp07

    I bet that regulator tasted fantastic when he put it in his mouth….

  • dumbhead

    he died

  • Hoop a jew

    did he died?

  • Rodef

    Lake Nahuel Huapi, in Bariloche, Argentina next year, when Puyehue volcan cover everything with ashes. I saw this on tv, he was searching the water pipes or something. I live 1500 kms or more far from there, and my car, house and other stuff got little ashes during a month or more.

    • theSidetracker

      Thank you! I was wondering what he was serching for.
