Man sets 380-foot free-diving record

A New Zealand man set a world record by diving 380 feet beneath the surface of the Atlantic Ocean without the use of fins, the World Records Academy confirmed.

William Trubridge, 29, held his breath underwater for 4 minutes and 9 seconds Sunday at the Vertical Blue Suunto Dive-Off at Dean's Blue Hole in the Bahamas, The Times of London reported Monday.

A report on the academy's Web site said Trubridge's record is for "the deepest free immersion dive."

Trubridge, who used the breaststroke to push himself downward, said he struggled with nitrogen narcosis during his feat.

"It was hard to get the tag from the bottom as I struggled with some narcosis," who had set previous records in the competition. "But it's great to have the free immersion record again."
