ST. PETERSBURG (FOX 13) -

A man originally from St. Petersburg died during a free diving competition in the Bahamas.

Nicholas Mevoli, 32, held his breath and dove more than 235 feet before resurfacing.    

Officials say he had difficulty breathing and quickly lost consciousness. He did not survive.

Unlike scuba divers, free divers enter the water without any equipment such as air tanks.
