  • Short Summary

    Deep Sea diving off the coast of Boston in the United States of America.

  • Description

    Deep sea diving in Boston Massachusetts, United States of America. Full titles read: "HUMAN FISH - breaks record for deep sea diving - new armoured diving suit enables diver to descend 360 feet."

    M/S Scene on the deck of a ship. Crewmen surround the deep sea diver as he prepares to go overboard. He is wearing a ridiculously designed swimsuit imaginable, ( it looks like some kind of alien from a 50's B-movie!) the suit is of metal construction and is incredibly clumsy and heavy looking.

    C/U The Helmet is put into place over the diver and attached to the suit with large bolts. M/S Some amusing scenes follow, the crewmen attach the diver onto a winch and hoist him off the deck. M/S He is lowered tentatively to the surface of the water. He is lowered right down until his head is completely submerged, before being pulled back to safety.
