Couple share record-breaking longest underwater kiss, video is viral | WATCH
Love trumps everything and apparently also helps in setting records, this was proven by a diver couple—South African Beth Neale and Canadian Miles Cloutier, —who made their Valentine’s Day extra special by sharing a record-setting underwater kiss lasting 4 minutes and 6 seconds beneath an infinity pool at a Maldives hotel.
The couple, who live in South Africa with their daughter, smashed the previous record of 3 minutes 24 seconds by nearly a minute. Guinness World Records said the previous record was set 13 years ago on the record keeper’s Italian TV show Lo Show dei Record.
A video captioned: ‘These lovebirds set a new underwater kiss record since their joint love was the ocean” was posted by the Guinness World Records on their official Twitter handle has been widely viewed and shared since it was shared.

According to an official release by Guinness World Records, the couple began their attempt at 7.30 am and did some breath hold warm-ups followed by two trial underwater kisses of two and three minutes each before they decided to have a go at the record.
The couple, who are underwater filmmaking enthusiasts, said that they came up with the idea of breaking the record three years ago, however, admittedly the actual effort was lot more challenging than Beth and Miles had anticipated.
Beth, who is a four-time South African Freedive Champion said that three days before the attempt she couldn’t even hold her breath, Miles added that their attempts were proving futile as they couldn’t even come close to the previous record.
He admitted that despite being professional, the effort was very difficult for them to perform.
Guinness World Records revealed that the couple had to fight the urge to swim to the surface and take a deep breath as carbon dioxide accumulated in their bodies underwater. But the couple managed to resist that instinctive urge by finding support in each other and went on to set the record.
