I just got back from The Melbourne Aquarium where I watched Cosentino calmly standing underwater, as sharks and stingrays swam around him for 3 minutes and 39 seconds while he picked four padlocks and a pair of handcuffs.

The event was televised live on national TV and it’s already received some great coverage with an article and picture gallery in THE AGE here and with ABC online.

There's a bit of video footage from the challenge HERE

For those interested in the escape should also check out his website at and look at the COS TV section to see a great training video he made in the lead up to the escape.
