“We are currently in the Maldives and my wife suggested taking a shortcut across the island to get to the other side. I'll be honest, I knew that my feet were going to get wet, I even considered that perhaps the bottom of my trousers may also get wet and I thought it could make an amusing video, so my wife proceeded to film. It was a total shock when I disappeared into the hole, and I kept going down, I think the hole may have been nine to 10 foot deep,” Lewis told Daily Mail. “Afterwards, I reached the surface, I scrambled out, and sat there composing myself whilst the wife laughed for a good 10 minutes,” he added.
