Why divers wear special suits when they go deep sea?

for protection, as astronauts need to wear space suits to do space walks. Humans are fragile beings.

In deep seas, the human body will encounter a pressure [Pa], in addition to atmospheric pressure, equals to rho*g*h, where rho = water density [~ 1000 kg/m3]; g = 9.8 [m/s2]; and h is the water depth [m].
