You would be surprised on how well electronics can recover in fresh water. My cell phone sat in water and I was able to recover it and I still use it. Main thing is to disconnect the battery and make sure it is completely dry.

I saw that video a few months back...out of the whole ordeal, my take-away from the challenge was to give that diver a medal. That was a truly impressive dive and considering the current and visability, I can't believe he found it.

I was thinking the same..when they were getting ready to go in I thought good luck....that water looked ice cold. Hope he got a case of beer for that.

Terrible flying technique. You can tell he wasn't comfortable flying tail first or side ways. Why he was flying over the water is beyond me. Glad he knew someone that could go and fish is out of the lake though. Definately shouldn't have been doing 3D and even more, he shouldn't havee been doing it over the lake. Oh well another life lesson learned. Talks alot too.
