See What's Under Water In World's Deepest Pool That Triggers People's Fears and Fantasies

"I thought this was going to be really pretty," writes a commenter. "But instead it terrified me."

A woman at the edge of a swimming pool steps down onto a stairway leading into the pool. As she descends with a camera fit for underwater filming, the view below the surface is suddenly visible. It is unlike any swimming pool in the world. In fact, Deep Dive Dubai bills itself as the world's deepest pool. Check out what it's like underwater in the video below.
