Reality TV: Photographer Dives Into Gulf Oil Slick [video]
Associated Press photographer Rich Matthews wants people to see the oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico in a different way, so he jumped into the contaminated waters with nothing more than a wetsuit, scuba gear and a video camera.
After jumping in Matthews describes what he sees:
"Splashing here forty miles offshore the images are heartbreaking. Oil so thick it blocks out almost all of the light below. Because of the darkness I stay just 10 to 15 feet under the surface, but I can see oil in every direction as far as I can look. Up and down."
