A 32-year-old competitive freediver died Sunday during a freediving tournament in the Bahamas.
Nicholas Mevoli, who lived in Brooklyn but was a Florida native, broke the U.S. record for freediving early in his professional career. He was vying to break the record for the deepest "Constant No Fins" dive during the Bahamas competition. (Via Vimeo / Performance Freediving)
