The body will not explode, explode means to burst or shatter violently and noisily as a result of rapid combustion, decomposition, excessive internal pressure, or other process, typically scattering fragments widely. The deeper and deeper you go underwater the more and more pressure there is on your body from the weight of the water above you. But answering the question that I think you are trying to ask, yes, extreme depth can harm the body and even cause death. But in most cases, excluding submarines and Scuba diving, you would drown before the pressures of the depths would cause any harm to your body.

I think that is true as the fact the atmospheric pressure is a lot higher in water than that above sea pressure but the pressure would move inwards making it impossible for the human body to implode it would just be crushed and shatter into tiny pieces
