By Neil Hartnell NASSAU (Reuters) - A record-holding diver died during a freediving competition in the Bahamas on Sunday in what officials said was the first fatality in the sport's 21 years of official competition. American diver Nicholas Mevoli of Brooklyn was conscious when he surfaced from his 72-meter (236-foot) dive, done without oxygen or fins, but blacked out about 30 seconds later, according to a statement by Vertical Blue, which runs freediving events in the Bahamas. "At the moment we are all extremely shocked and saddened and trying to establish what happened," reads the Vertical Blue statement posted on Facebook. "Competition freediving has an enviable safety record but the sport can never be risk-free, something understood by all freedivers." His death appears connected to lung damage suffered during the dive and marks the first time a competitor has died during an officially sanctioned event in 21 years of more than 35,000 competitive dives, according to the Switzerland-based Association Internationale pour le Développement de l'Apnée, which governs breath-hold diving events worldwide.
