Brit tourist takes short-cut across Maldives swamp & plunges 10ft into muddy water.

TBRIT tourist Martin Lewis takes a short-cut across a swamp — and plunges into 10ft of muddy water.

Martin, 50, was tip-toeing over the mire when he ­vanished with a splash. He reappeared moments later, wiping the gunk from his eyes.

Then, caked in mud, he jumped on a hired motorbike as the couple headed for the beach in the Maldives.

Martin, from Somerset, said: "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.

“I was pretty shocked, but wasn’t phased or scared after spending a week diving here with 15 foot tiger sharks.”

He continued: "Afterwards, I reached the surface, I scrambled out, and sat there composing myself whilst the wife laughed for a good 10 minutes.

“She was doubled over most of the time, trying desperately not to wee herself.

“Afterwards, we walked away and got on the moped we had hired and headed straight to the beach.”
