Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio had a brush with death during a diving trip off the Galapagos Islands. He felt suffocated while trying to shoot a school of stingray.

“I was trying to get footage with a rinky-dink camera. I looked down, because I was exerting myself a lot, and I think the tanks weren't fastened properly and I had, like 40 pounds of pressure,” contactmusic.com quoted him as saying.

It was a moment when his life flashed before him: “All you think about then is like ‘Get me the hell out of this situation’.”
