1. Francisco “Pipin” Ferreras, a controversial but record-breaking free-diver, is coming out of retirement for one more dive — the same dive that killed his wife in 2002.
6. Ferreras tells NBC Latino that he was in denial and lost everything, but this final dive is his calling.
“I really admire people who fall down and always get back up. Those are my winners and everybody has a chance to be happy even if you make mistakes. Everybody deserves a second chance.”
7. The story of Ferreras’ and Mestre’s love and fatal end was tragically told by sportswriting legend Gary Smith in Sports Illustrated.
9. He is training now and filming a documentary called The Challenge of Science: 15 Years Later, which will chronicle his attempt to break the “no-limits” world record of diving 702 feet in honor of his wife.
