154 m (505.2 ft) – Brigitte Lenoir (Switzerland), April 10, 2010. Mrs Lenoir used a Megalodon rebreather. In addition to the rebreather, she was equipped with four tanks for use in the event of an emergency and to inflate her suit. The equipment had a combined weight of 100 kg (220 lbs). Her record objective was 160 m (525 ft) but she had to end the descent when her suit bottle regulator started to freeflow. The rebreather record was part of her preparations to attempt the deepest dive ever made by a woman (230 m / 755 ft). The record attempt was scheduled for August 2010 but Mrs Lenoir died on May 14 during a training dive.
