The Lebanese Diver Mohamed Zein broke the record for diving for 24 hours near the shore of Ain el Mraiseh in Beirut. During this event, he remained underwater from 11:00 am on Saturday until 11:00 am on Sunday.
The Lebanese diver is considered to be the first person in Lebanon to undertake such an initiative, which involves him spending his time underwater cleaning the sea from plastic waste and remains.
With logistical support from the Maritime Rescue Unit in the Civil Defense Unit on land and at sea, Mohamed Zein got out safely and in good health condition.
This initiative was taken by the Lebanese diver to complete his dream of breaking the Guinness World Record for diving.
Mohamed Zein will go on his next diving journey around April 2023 as he is preparing to dive for 48 hours until he breaks the record scored by the Egyptian diver, Saddam Killany, who spent 145 hours and 30 minutes underwater.
