Shallow diver breaks world record for paddling pool jump

Help

A US shallow diver has broken his own world record by swan-diving 36ft (11m) into a paddling pool containing just 12in (30.5cm) of water.

Darren Taylor, also known as Professor Splash, dived into a pool of near-freezing water in Trondheim, Norway, making the jump his 13th Guinness certified record.

Mr Taylor, who is from Colorado in the US, has 25 years' professional high-diving experience and works as a stunt diver.
