New World Record set by British Diver

Date: 8/2/2010

Thirty-two-year-old Will Goodman, from Borehamwood, UK, set a new world record by spending forty-eight hours, nine minutes and seventeen seconds on the seabed off the coast of Indonesian island Lombok. He said he just wanted his tea when he finally surfaced after two days under water. He spent his time in a metal cage with fresh oxygen supplied to him by his support crew who also doubled as a comedy act to keep up his spirits. Will has been hooked on breaking records for scuba diving since he set his first one in 2005, but this, his third record for longest open scuba dive is the first to be recognised by Guiness World Records. Adjudicators were on hand to verify his feat.
