UT scuba diving club breaks world record

The University of Toledo’s scuba diving club, DiveUT, has broken the Guinness Book of World Records for the longest time under water by a group of divers in a confined area.

At 3:30 a.m. today the team broke the record exceeding seven days underwater, breaking the old record of 6 days and 21 hours.

A “splash down” celebration of the accomplishment will take place at 1 p.m. today (Tuesday, April 9) in the Student Union Trimble Lounge with the UT mascot Rocky and university leadership.

The team of 25 divers has been switching out individiuals in the tank as needed since Monday with the goal to set a world record by keeping a scuba diver in the water of a 330 gallon tote for seven days.
