At the top of his game champion cliff diver Joey Zuber travels the globe regularly, he decides to embark upon an unusual diving exhibition in a remote region of Colombia. He plunges from a bridge and a split second misjudgment leads to a broken femur (thigh bone). In excruciating pain, he swims to safety and pulls his deformed leg back into a straight position.
Enduring a nine-hour ambulance ride with no pain relief, Joey is trapped in a world of pain and disbelief. Surgery lasts for eight hours with severe complications and several days later his life hangs in the balance with acute kidney failure. His mental strength and fitness prevail to recover from ICU.
After four years, six operations and gruelling rehabilitation Joey returns to the scene of the crime to dive from the very same bridge in Colombia. This story has been transformed into a documentary 'Dive Into Fear'.
Overcoming adversity and fear management are keys principles of his speeches.
