The East River

Today, we’re filming with the NYPD’s SCUBA team as part of Counterterror NYC. It’s several days before opening debate at the United Nations General Assembly, and the SCUBA team is sweeping the UN headquarters seawall. As you might expect, visibility in the East River is almost non-existent, divers can see on average about two feet in front of them. Two officers will literally feel their way across the seawall, using sophisticated sonar equipment to help identify bombs or any other threats that might be lurking in the water.
