What is the answer it the riddle There is a scubadiver with an empty air tank dead in the middle of the forest His body is dry and there is no water around How did he get there?

One possible answer involves a forest fire and a very charred scuba diver. During a fire a water carrying helicopter collected water from the sea in order to extinguish it. However the helicopter also picked up the scuba diver, in the sea water, and the diver was killed when he was dumped in the middle of the fire, most likely from a high altitude.

How did a scuba driverget up in a tree on a burnt forest?

This is an urban legend that turned out to be false. Supposedly the scuba diver was picked up by one of the helicopters that was pouring water on the fire and he ran out of air while traveling. Snopes can tell you more:

Why is air that is pressurized needed in scuba diving?

A person can only breath air that has the same pressure has his or her surroundings. Under water, the pressure will go up fairly quickly (every 10 meter / 33 feet of water exert the same pressure as that on the surface) and the scuba gear will make sure the diver gets air with the same pressure as that of the surroundings.

In a burnt forest a scuba diver was found up a tree how did it get up there?

The helicopter bucket picked him up while he was scuba diving 20 MILES away from the forest he didn't even realize it until he was doing a backstroke in a bucket 300 miles in the freaking air and when they opened the bucket door the water came out and so did he :( I feel so bad for him Smh..

How deep can you dive without equipment on?

You don't really have to worry about dying when diving without scuba gear on, If you go under and continue to swim down you will be accompanied with some painful amounts of pressure, so its really up to you how much you can take. experienced divers can go down about 20ft to 30ft because they are used to the pressure. A new diver would only be able to go about 15 ft before realizing it hurts and you want to go back up. There are techniques to reducing the amount of pressure and pain but you still won't make it far passed 15ft without some effects.
