We regret to hear that tragedy has struck the Audrey Mestre’s IAFD World Record Attempt in No Limits.

The facts we know at the moment are as follows:

– Audrey Mestre was brought to the surface by rescue divers, during an attempt to do a no limits dive to 171 meters. She was underwater for over 9 minutes. She was pronounced dead at a hospital in La Romana later that afternoon.

The shock and pain to her friends, her crew and her family are indescribably intense. Audrey was a beautiful human being, a wonderful and courageous young woman.
