Superhuman Filipino diver from the Badjao tribe ;BBC

This man descend 20 meters (65 feet) to sea floor, his heart slows down to 30 beats per minute, pressure squeezes his lungs to 1/3 of their initial volume, even without weights he is negatively buoyant enough to stride across the bottom of the sea as if like hunting on land, 2 1/2 minutes of hunting under pressure.

"superhuman diver"? Well... Take a minute to check out how long other people have held their breath underwater in freediving community. William Trubridge for example. His record is 124m. World record for static apnea is 11 min 35 sec. I would consider these people quite better described as superhuman. Herbert Nitsch is amazing. Watch:
