As for the Humbolt haven't heard that one :shock: I know they've attacked divers but I hadn't heard they'd actually killed one....still if you're gonna get in the water with a bunch of very large, very hungry predators who swim better than you do, ya may be asking for trouble!

I only know that one researcher was attacked by a humboldt. I can't remember if it was on film.
There was some documentray on Channel 4 (and pos. Discovery) with some title like "Giant Squid Attack" about a researcher diving off Baha and the squid did indeed attack. I suspect its already been discussed here before but if not I can probably track the details down.
