For more than a few inches underwater the tube would collapse from the pressure and it would be very difficult to breathe through if done like a snorkle. Maybe it could work if someone on the surface blew air down to the person entrapped.

Have to assume this is the same James McComb that was involved with this previous accident.

Yes, Jim McComb unfortunately drowned in very similar circumstances two years later.
