Many Detroit Lions fans and several players have expressed concern over Ndamukong Suh appearing on the reality TV show “Celebrity Diving.” There is certainly some danger involved when a 300-pound man plunges into a pool from a high dive, but comedian Louie Anderson must be happy Suh took the risk. According to TMZ, Anderson (another contestant on the show) was practicing his dives last week when he became exhausted and nearly sank to the bottom of the pool. He reportedly fell off the ladder and into the water several times before being lifted out of the pool and rescued by Suh and diving legend Greg Louganis. Anderson’s rep said that he is “feeling great” and going to be fine, despite the fact that he reportedly coughed up water for several seconds after being pulled from the pool. Naturally, Suh was the one who lifted him from the water. TMZ has some photos of the alleged incident here. The Lions defensive tackle may have a reputation for playing dirty because of incidents like this, but it sounds like he was involved with a different kind of extracurricular activity on the set of “Celebrity Diving.” The city of Detroit is worried that Suh is putting himself at risk by participating, but the contestants must enjoy having an NFL lineman on hand to rescue them from fatigue.
