Freediver Has Broken World Record 8 Times
Arnaud Jerald has just set a world record in freediving. Without the aid of an air tank, 27-year-old Jerald held his breath and descended 400-feet into the ocean. For comparison, a SCUBA diver with a PADI open water certification is licensed to go only 60-feet down. Jerald did it all on his own while holding his breath. The entire drive took about four minutes; it took him 105 seconds to go down and 109 seconds to come back to the surface.
