Not wanting to take away anything from any other guest - But this has to be my best episode yet!
Chris Lemons the star of the Netflix film 'Last Breath'
Chris reveals loads of details about how the film came about, how it was made, what happened before, during and after the incident.
He also tells about the impact it has had on himself his family and his colleagues.
The documentary uses genuine footage and audio recorded at the time of the accident on the divers' radios and body cameras, supplemented with interviews of several of the individuals involved, as well as some reconstructed footage, to tell the story of the accident.
Chris Lemons, along with his colleagues Duncan Allcock and David Yuasa, was carrying out repairs 100m below the surface of the North Sea, supported by the support vessel Bibby Topaz. The vessel's dynamic positioning system, supplied by Kongsberg Maritime, failed.
This caused the vessel to drift in rough seas, dragging the divers away from the area they were working and eventually snapping the umbilical tether that provided Lemons with heliox to breathe, as well as hot water to heat his suit, power for his light, and a radio link to the surface. He was left with only five minutes of breathable gas contained in the cylinders he wore on his back.
For reasons that are unclear to Lemons and his colleagues, but attributed in part to the cold water and have been breathing air with high partial pressure of oxygen, Lemons survived for around 30 minutes while he was located by a remote underwater vehicle and then by Yuasa, who was able to pull him back onboard the diving bell.
