CNN Diving Under The Oil Slick

CNN is broadcasting live from underneath the oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico. The network has photojournalist Rich Brooks and recent addition Philippe Cousteau under the water, joined by a dive-master. The team is under the slick to see firsthand what effect the dispersants are having, as well as the effect on the wildlife there.

Speaking of wildlife, you aren’t seeing things, that is a shark swimming not far from the CNN camera. It is a “four or five footer” according to the dive-master.

“Probably haven’t seen too much going on out here lately, so they’re probably just wondering what the heck is going on.”
