Last week Cerrone went scuba diving for $500 worth of silver that had been hidden in the bottom of a lake. It almost cost him his life.

So I had like a massive air leak and I’m sunk at the bottom of a lake. And my regulator’s wide open flowing – just screaming air out of it.

To provide context on the 200 psi, when filled, cylinder gas pressure normally ranges between 2,900 and 4,400 psi.
