Underwater press conference

A group of 21 Austrian journalists claim to have broken a world record after taking part in an underwater press conference.

The reporters, clad in full diving gear, swam 16ft below the surface of the Traun Lake in Austria.

Special waterproof paper and pens were handed out for the journalists to ask questions and an underwater flipchart was set up for the presentation.

The press conference was to launch a new book on diving by Austrian authors Leo Ochsenbauer und Klaus-M. Schremser.

The group are now planning to submit their claim with the Guinness Book of Records after a public notary witnessed the event.

The current world record is held by 15 reporters who took part in an underwater press conference last year in Las Vegas.
