About the Speaker

Chris Lemons has been a commercial diver for over 14 years, and currently specialises in deep sea Saturation diving, operating almost exclusively in the Oil and Gas Industry and his video of how he survived his Last Breath.

 

This highly specialised form of diving involves living in the claustrophobic confines of a decompression chamber for up to 28 days at a time, commuting daily to the sea-bed in a diving bell, and working at depths of up to 900 feet for 6 hours at a time.

 

In September of 2012, a freak failure of the dynamic positioning system of the vessel he was working under, resulted in the umbilical which provides him with breathing gas, light and heat being severed completely.

 

He was left on the sea-bed, in complete darkness 300 feet below the surface, with only the 5 minutes of breathing gas he carried in the emergency tanks on his back, and no way to protect himself from the freezing temperatures.

About the Video

Chris Lemons as a commercial diver was stranded on the seabed with five minutes of oxygen, but with no chance of rescue for half an hour. With access to astonishing underwater archive, this is the true story of one man’s impossible fight for survival. GRAVITY meets TOUCHING THE VOID - 100 metres underwater.

 

Chris's extraordinary story is the subject of the hit BBC/Netflix documentary film 'Last Breath,' produced by Met Films and Floating Harbour, directed by Alex Parkinson and Richard Da Costa and released in 2019.

The film was borne from a 45 minute in house documentary titled 'Lifeline' which used the original footage alongside interviews with many of those involved to tell a safety story from a human and highly emotional point of view.

'Lifeline' proved so successful that it came to the attention of both the BBC and Netflix, and was remade as a feature length documentary featuring reconstructions created by the original protagonists.

Last Breath has proved a worldwide success, drawing excellent reviews and international acclaim.
