SULLIVAN COUNTY, Tennessee -- Jerry Hall continued his attempt on Thursday to break the world record for the longest fresh water scuba dive.

Hall went into the lake on Saturday and planned to stay there until Friday.

He watched movies and talked with friends through a camera system to pass the time. He even slept!

“I actually slept really good last night,” Hall said. “I mean I’m in the world’s largest water bed.”

A team of 20 volunteers provided a steady supply of water and Gatorade to Hall.

The volunteers also cut up Hall’s food in small bites so he could eat underwater.
