10-Year-Old Becomes World's Youngest Scuba Diver

Last year we brought you stories of a 13-year-old rescue diver, and an 11-year-old Master Diver.

Now, it's a 10-year-old scuba diver.

Mumbai's Parth Sanghvi has become the youngest scuba open water diver when he plunged 40 feet underwater near Grande Island in India's western state of Goa, Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) said Thurday.

The 10-year-old, who achieved the feat earlier this week, was awarded PADI junior open water scuba divers certificate on February 23, a day after his birthday.

Parth broke the record of Egypt's Natasha Turner, who had become the youngest diver at the age of 10 years and three days.

Of course, this obviously begs one question: how young is too young?
