Deep Trouble

Should you follow the rules, even when it means missing out?

While scuba diving near a shipwreck with his parents, 15-year old Cal sees a glimmer of gold in a kelp bed – possibly one of the sunken treasure coins “worth a fortune” their ship captain had mentioned.

Cal decides to take a quick detour without signaling his parents, and discovers it’s not just one gold coin, it’s a pile of them!

But before he can reach the coins, Cal gets tangled in the thick kelp. He panics and becomes completely stuck – buried deep in the dense kelp forest, out of sight of his parents, with no way to call anyone, and with his oxygen running out.
