Man Holds His Breath For A Record 22 Minutes
Quote The next time you're watching a TV show, think about this: One man recently held his breath for nearly the entire duration of that half-hour program.
Stig Severinsen, a world champion freediver and breathing expert, captured the Guinness World Record with this amazing feat.
Granted, Severinsen did have some assistance -- before going underwater, he inhaled pure oxygen so as to saturate his body with oxygen. That said, this is still incredibly impressive.
If life gives you lemons, make lemonade.
