A 23-year-old Dartmouth College graduate says he’ll try again to break the record for the most time spent under water. John Craven spent just over 24 hours this weekend beneath the surface of Lake Fairlee in Fairlee as he challenged the 72-hour world record.
Craven is trying to raise money for milfoil removal on the lake. Craven was inspired to try a 100-hour dive after reading about the man who set the current record in a Tennessee lake.
Craven’s support team says he was ready to keep going when he left the water yesterday afternoon, but he didn’t have enough juice left in him to beat the existing record. There’s no word on when Craven will try again.
