This is the first scuba scene from legendary Pamela Anderson in Baywatch! With her Baywatch colleague Alexandra Paul she goes scuba diving. But there is an evil diver already waiting for them, and he has some explosives ready for his fiendish plan!

The scene is pretty long, so it was no big surprise that it was blocked by YouTube right away. The I uploaded the beginning at YouTube, that worked.
However, I wanna present the whole scene without cuts….so here it is, the full 11 minutes:
Well, Pamela Anderson was always a…..highlight at Baywatch. And seeing her with scuba gear…is even better of course!
Of course, as usual, the air reserves are already nearly gone as they are trapped. A real classic, it seems that in all these movies and TV-series….the people that get trapped underwater ….have always a near empty tank. 😉
The evil diver and his “indirect approach” to finish the Baywatch frogwomen makes a really good peril plot. Of course I would have prefered a more….”direct approach”. A surprise attack from behind would have been my favorite (they survive nonetheless).
Well, with this post I wanna start a new category! There are a lot of comics that have scuba scenes in it. Some of them have scenes with underwater fights or other peril scenes. And some of those should have female divers in it (even most of these action scenes are with men 🙁 ).
So, I wanna present scenes that I found AND scenes that you can recommend (more on that below).
Ok, the scene for today is from a comic book from germany. So most of you should have problems to understand the written parts.
But don’t worry, the story is very simple.
Mike Nelson (the hero from Sea Hunt!) has found out about a criminal couple who steal from yachts at night. So he swims after them (without scuba gear….he wasn’t prepared) and wants to stop them!

Ok, well, the action scene with the female diver only has one panel….but with the text…it really fuels the imagination 😉
English translation of the text in that panel:
Mike passes the girl. He rips the air hose from her tank and forces her to the surface.
Well, that’s a pretty great line 😉
Now imagine that scene in a movie…..wouldn’t that be great?
Ok, these two criminals doing a very poor job. They are 2 against one. They both have full sets of scuba gear. And Mike has no gear at all, not even a mask.
And yet he easily finishes them off….he’s Mike “the scuba warrior” Nelson! 😉
And I don’t know if you actually could rip a modern air hose off a tank….but that’s a nice experiment for some day. 🙂
I will try to get more scenes with female divers in action, but here’s my question!
Do you know any scenes like that? With female divers in action/peril in comic books?
If yes, please let me know! If the scene is good I will offer a free month (or monthS) for the Frogwoman VIP club in return!
Thanks for the recommendations so far (by mail, comment or otherwise)!
I already got 2 great scenes and one good one that will be posted in the next weeks here!
Keep em coming!
Already gave out a total of 6 months free VIP memberships.
Thanks to the one who recommended me this one (sorry, don’t know who was it…)!
In this one a disaster strikes and floods (partly) a mall and the surrounding area. We have some nice folks who just wanna escape (no easy way out) and a crazy criminal who wants to get his hands on a certain suitcase which is locked away there. So, he forces the others to help him and they discover scuba gear in the mall. So, they can move through the flooded areas….

And here is the video:
Well, that is one EVIL guy!
I don’t know why there a scuba tanks in a normal/regular sports shop, but ok, perhaps there are such shops in the US.
It is only a short peril scene but still a good one. The way he teases her with his full tank. 😉
Of course she wasn’t in a real danger, one meter below the surface…but well, she realises that she is trapped down there without a filled scuba tank.
I will post a 2nd part and reveal the movie title then.
Ok, now it is finally time to present this (until now… very rare) gem. After I saw some images of this show…I know immediately that I must see the scenes to the pictures.
I started a post in which I asked if anybody would have a video of that scene. Luckily I got a pretty quick response and got several videos and pictures along with explanations.
THANK you very MUCH “D.” !!! 🙂
And now it is time to share this with you folks! Thanks for subscribing to my youtube channel and for all the patience!
One last thing: This is his original video, I didn’t edit it in any way to avoid any image quality loss and to show “his” video. He recorded it on VHS and edited/cutted it with “primitive” (his words) tools afterwards.
He doesn’t have the complete scene without cuts anymore.

And here is the video:
READ this AFTER you watched the video!
First some selected (translated) background information from him:
“A german dive couple dives to a place where some jewels are hidden (The “Tränen der Kleopatra” (title of this S.O.S. Barracuda movie)).
But they are not alone. The evil diver attacks her from behind and cut her air hose. Afterwards the evil diver battles her dive buddy and is forced to the surface.
Later she is found by some members of the “Barracuda” (police ship).
My opinion on all this:
The struggle between her and the attacker is much too short. The camera work is too fast and too shaky. We don’t see very much of her….
Many “mistakes”: Her tanks empties so fast…. if she had more than a few % of her air left…that’s mistake. It should take much longer until she is out.
She doesn’t fight back and her only action is to use the octopus.
And why is her dive buddy suddenly so far away from her? He was pretty close as he was cutting these cables.
First of all, this is the ONLY scene I know (in a movie or TV series) where a female diver is attacked…her air hose gets cut…AND she actually drowns afterwards. In every other scene with an air hose cut…the female diver always survive. This aspect make it unique! GREAT! A real big + point!
After he drowned we get to see a lot of scenes of her dead body. That is very rare too.
I guess many will love all these “death stare” scenes. And let’s be honest: I do ….like them….somehow. (But my main interest is to see the struggle before the drowning)
I do really like this video! It misses key elements (struggle/fight) for me….BUT it offers a LOT! Very unique stuff….
