FORT SMITH (KFSM)- A local diver will appear on national television after he was asked to help the History Channel. The program will present evidence from a dive showing giants once lived in Arkansas.

It was a two day, 40-foot adventure in July on Beaver Lake for Mike Young from Fort Smith.

“Being the explorer, I had to go look at it,” Young said.

Young said he was looking for giants.

“They were between eight to 10 feet long,” Young said. “There was one room off to the back that did get pretty tight.”

Young said no skeletons were found this time. He said there is strong evidence human giants lived in the area that is now Arkansas. Young came across a wall that he said was man-made.

“This cave also had a flowing spring in it, which would have been an ideal shelter," Young said.

Young said extensive training is important.

"If you panic at any time, it`s probably going to be fatal,” Young said. “The gravel bank collapsed on us and buried me. I had about eight minutes worth of air and so I had to start digging. If you panic, it`s over.”

Young's dive is expected to air Nov. 4 on History Channel.
