[blockquote style=”2″]”We all feel deep sadness and share our grief with Mikhail’s family and friends. He was a great colleague and friend to many of us. He participated in many AIDA competitions and freediving events. Saddened and frustrated at the same time, we can only renew our appeals to never dive without the supervision and assistance of others. Apparently Mikhail was alone. We are very sorry for his death.”[/blockquote]
