Are you ready?

Okay, one, two, three, jump.

Twenty-seven people

sailed away from this dock,

they were looking forward

to a great day together,

when suddenly things took

a turn for the worse.

High drama at sea,

a shark cage dive exhibition

was capsized earlier today.

Dumping everyone

into the chilly waters.

An urgent search and

rescue mission is underway

after a shark dive boat was

capsized by a freak wave

off the South Australian coast.

Leaving passengers

and crew stranded

in shark infested waters.


unsuspecting group of tourists

and an experienced

shark cave diving crew

headed out today for

what was supposed to be

a routine and fun day trip.

The dive site had

been baited to attract

Great White Sharks,

some up to 19 feet in length.

No one could possibly predict

what was to happen next.

Eye witness accounts

indicate that the boat

was hit by some kind

of a freak wave.

In the

middle of their cage dive

rough seas struck

washing everyone on board

into shark infested waters.

This time without the

protection of a cage.

In a second we saw

this big wave coming.

Among the people missing are

three friends from California.

Police and rescuers

are holding out hope

they can still be found alive.

We will find those

missing persons

and bring them safely to shore.

Let's go and find

some treasure, shall we.

I've been diving

here in Australia now

for the last 10 years.

Went with a few friends,

we all went to Adelaide.

And I'm just having a nice dive.

My buddies are elsewhere,

I was following a

couple of tropical fish

and I saw something.

I was amazed.

It was a camera and I think,

"What's a camera doing

down on the ocean

10, 20Ks out from the shore?

What have we got?

Told ya we'd find something.

I opened it up, had a look

and the SD card

had been preserved.

I put it into my computer,

started looking through

some of the footage

and, uh, there was three

American people.

- There we go.

- Hey.

- Dude, this looks sweet.

- Good quality?

Yeah, it'll be perfect, bro.

- Does it make me look good?

- Yeah, you look wonderful.

This has got a

photo function here.

Fabio, why don't

you give me a pose?

Hold on.

Everybody hold on.

This isn't a movie, man.

This is the one

that got Megan.

Don't worry, folks,

he's only my half-brother.

That's why you're only half.

Here take this, joker.

What are you

going to do for us?

I don't have to do anything,

Jeffery. I ooze excellence.

Hey, cool shirt, dude.

- This is my

go to Australia shirt.

- That'd be good for

the surface caves.

- Is that deep enough?

Well, the cage dive is,

like, it's a surface cage dive.

Not very deep.

Oh, dude,

I left the tub running.

This battery's pretty low.

Yeah, I know I

haven't charged it yet.

Whoa, it's going to over flow.

When did you

start the bath? Yesterday?

- All right, we ready?

Here we go.

- Okay.

- Yo!

- Hey!

All right.

We're in here.

- Hey, you look nice.

- Hi.

Oh, you got a new camera!

It's really good.

- It works perfect.

- Awesome, cool.

Hey, um, did you

hear from Greg yet?

Is he cool with picking

us up from the airport?

He is, that he is.

He emailed this morning.

All right, well, I got back from

work and I need to shower.

You guys need to vamoose.

Oh, do you need a hand or?

No, I'm okay.

I'm rolling.

- Okay. So here's our show, guys.

- Oh, no.

What I've been talking about,

is an extreme and

intense reality game show

- looking for crazy people.

- - Crazy people.

I thought you

guys would fit right in.

- Oh, look, 100,000 dude.

- I told you so, right?
