Underwater Welding is Dangerous

Welding and diving are hard enough alone, but when you put them together, you have an astonishingly hazardous career. I hear it pays very well, yet the contents of this video are more than enough to turn you off the job. In the YouTube comments, quite a few people have known an underwater welder at one time or another in their lives. Some of those welders died on the job, some were permanently injured, and the rest will just try to convince you not to go into such a line of work. Besides what is outlined in the video, they relate tales of being in the dark water and suddenly encountering a massive sea creature who came over to get a look! (via Nag on the Lake)
