Are we talking someone with a little bit of diving experience or a Navy clearance diver? If you are going down hundreds of meters you're probably going to need more than just standard dive gear - you're going to need a diving bell for decompression stops or maybe even a decompression chamber on the surface. If the diver isn't well experienced and well supported and he's going that deep I'd say there is a significant risk of death.
