This diver seems to be looking for a Darwin Award.

How is there not a grate on the intake of the pipes? He was never in danger of being chopped up. The suction is in those large pools inside the beach, the pipe he went though just connects the pools with the ocean. The pumps suck the water from the pools and the ocean water simply keeps the pools from draining out.

Had he got close to the suction in the pools....then he may have been in trouble.

I call bs on the diver not knowing what they were. If you have ever been there you know that you cannot miss seeing the very large nuclear powerplant on the beach. There is very litlle if anything alse in the area.

Course he knew what they were. Or he is an idiot and shouldn't be diving.

That really sucks though.

Another money grab.
Another lake fenced off.
More restrictions.
Higher power costs.

Next time you wonder why electric rates are higher, just call the resident moron, and his lawyer!

Sounds fun as long as you knew there was not a grate or pump impeller up ahead doubling as a big chum grinder....

Warning buoy with huge structures underneath the water in front of a nuclear power plant and this moron decides to dive down and check them out??? Maybe he needs to consider giving up diving and look for a safer hobby!

From the news story
"Best friends since high school, Blake and Christopher tied their boat to the buoy and dove in to check out what was beneath while their families stayed behind on the boat.

"Were there any warnings posted anywhere?" Werksma asked.

"Nowhere, there was no warnings whatsoever," said Le Cun."


The yellow buoy is a warning. They were just too stupid to know the meaning of a yellow buoy.

Well in the first place, it's illegal to tie up to a navigation / warning buoy in the first place.

Holy crap...that is crazy

We used to fish a place called the boils years ago when I was in college to catch tarpon, snook, spinner sharks, big jacks. It was south of ft Pierce inlet, is that the same place?
