    Well sadly, I have just seen this one in our local dive news letter:

    A 42 yr old diver died after he performed the world record for diving without oxygen under the ice. It happened at Davos in Switzerland.

    The man was no longer up to breathe. Another scuba diver, (with an oxygen tank) found him unconscious under the ice. The man was brought to the surface, but died Sunday in a hospital.

    The police in Davos then announced the news.

    For information, the current world record is held by the German Nik Linder. He swam 108 meters under the ice.
