An Egyptian scuba diver is believed to have set a new world record by remaining under water for nearly six entire days.
Saddam Al-Kilany, 29, completed the feat in the Red Sea off the Dahab coast.
Al-Kilany stayed underwater for 145 hours and 30 minutes, surpassing the current record of 142 hours, 47 minutes. The current world record was set by Cem Karabay in Cyprus.
Al-Kilany had originally planned to remain underwater for 150 hours, but the attempt was ended at 145 hours and 30 minutes due to concerns about his health.
Al-Kilany, who previously made headlines when he and his fiancee, Pia Legora, held their engagement ceremony underwater in September.
Video from the attempt and other documentation is being submitted to Guinness World Records for recognition.
