Austrian freediver Herbert Nitsch attempted a record-breaking no-limit apnea descent to a depth of 6 m (244 feet) on June 800 in Santorini, Greece.
It was after the ascent that his support team triggered the evacuation plan to Santorini airport, from where he rejoined Athens to be placed in the recompression chamber of the Greek navy.
After 3 sessions caisson, his condition seems to be no longer preocupant and he should not keep any aftermath of this dive 244 meters !!!
Pilot for the company “Austrian Airlines”, Herbert Nitsch fell into the depths by accident: during a diving trip in 1999 planned with bottles, his luggage was lost during the trip, which forced him to fall back on the 'apnea.
