Freediver Dies

Date: 12/2/2014

New York competitive freediver Nuicholas Mevoli was conscious when he surfaced from his 72-metre competition dive but blacked out 30 seconds later according to
Vertical Blue which runs freediving events in the Bahamas. His death appears connected to lung damage suffered during the dive and marks the first time a competitor has died during an officially sanctioned event in 21 years of more than 35,000 competitive dives.
