Man attempting world record dive
BRISTOL, Tenn. — A diver is trying to break the world record for the longest freshwater scuba dive and he’s almost there. Jerry Hall entered the water on Saturday. Since then he hasn’t come up and he says so far, so good.
He’s eating small bites of food and, he’s talking with friends, watching movies and even sleeping.
“I actually slept really good last night. I mean I’m in the world’s largest water bed,” Hall said.
At least 20 volunteer divers are working to make sure Hall has a steady supply of water and Gatorade. He hopes to stay in the water until noon on Friday.
