DiveUT, the University of Toledo’s scuba diving club, has broken the Guinness Book of World Records for spending the longest time underwater by a group of divers in a confined area.
The previous record of six days and 21 hours was broken at 3:30 a.m. Tuesday, at which time the divers exited the water after seven days. A celebration in the Student Union Trimble Lounge honoring the record was held Tuesday afternoon.
A team of 25 divers was involved in the feat, which allowed for switching out individuals in the 330-gallon tote tank.
