Scary Video of Diver Attacking Another Diver [VIDEO]

Subscribe to WPDH on

Rene Umberger was filming underwater footage of the coral reef, as she dove off the coast of Hawaii…when she suddenly saw two other divers in the distance. The two male divers were collecting reef fish, which is legal for those with a permit and who follow state regulations. Umberger is a coral reef consultant and conservationist, which have clashed before with reef fishermen.

All three divers were about fifty feet below the surface, when suddenly one of the divers does the unthinkable, and swims towards her and rips out her breathing device.

She told Hawaii News Now

An inexperienced diver would likely panic. Either panic from the stress of the situation and shoot for the surface. They may panic because their air source is missing and they can’t find it. Any of those things causes a diver to shoot for the surface and those incidents often lead to death. Never in a million years. Never in a million years did I think that someone would attack like that, especially from such a distance. It’s not like we were close up or in their face.


Umberger was able to replace the breathing regulating and slowly surface.  She believes she knows who the assailant is and plans to press charges.
