The dangers of marine diamond mining were highlighted on "Diamond Divers" (Wed., 10 p.m. ET on Spike) Wednesday night when a diver had a potentially lethal equipment malfunction underwater.

Principal diver Marty had gone down to fix a faulty piece of equipment when a hose on his oxygen tank sprang a leak, 90 feet below the surface.

As Marty struggled and started to run out of air, the crew on the surface remined unaware that he was in trouble. Eventually the experienced diver managed to make a controlled ascent to the surface before he ran out of air.

"Diamond Divers" continues on Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on Spike.
