Cave Diving: The Explorers

When you think of exploration, going somewhere no one has never been, you probably think of distant remote places. What if we told you there were parts of Florida being discovered right now. They are underground and for the first time in this report they are being shown to the world.

Caves: A Christmas Day Tragedy

Thursday CBS4 televised the first report of a series focused on Florida’s cave diving community. Over six months our special projects unit studied the industry extensively. We took cave diving classes and even dove into a number of caves. We set out to take our viewers closer to the sport than ever reported, by being the first television news station to go into caves. It meant putting the reporter and photographer through all the paces. The end result was a better understanding of the sport in all aspects of reporting, shooting, and editing.
