    Another apnea pool death at a YMCA

    I was saddened to read of another swimmer dying while attempting a DYN (type) of swim, and am sharing it so that others will be aware of it. The person who drowned was not a freediver it seems, but a collegiate swimmer. He was attempting to swim "4 laps" after a 4000 yard swim workout. My son is...
