A 95-year-old British veteran of World War Two broke his own record on Saturday as the world’s oldest scuba diver after taking the plunge to explore a shipwreck off Cyprus. Ray Woolley, who turned 95 on Aug. 28, already holds the record as the oldest active male scuba diver. On Saturday he dived for 44 minutes at a depth of 40.6 meters, beating his previous record of 41 minutes and 38.1 meters - when he was 94.“I am trying to prove to myself, and I hope to other people, that exercise, especially when you are getting to around my age, is most important to do,” he told  after returning to land.
