    You’re fucked either way but extra fucked in water.
    Water doesn’t like compressing and transfers energy really well.
    You would end up a mushy pulverised skinbag.
    In air you’d still likely have ruptured organs and a few holes. But less destroyed than if you were water man.

      There is actually a reasonable chance of surviving shrapnel even from just 5m, though if you die it’s likely to be quick. Underwater, on the other hand, you will survive the shrapnel, but the blast will mess up your insides.
