Six divers pose for a group photo after coming out safely from a living chamber on a ship anchored at a dock in Shenzhen, south China's Guangdong province, Jan 25, 2014. A diving bell took the divers reach a depth of 313.5 meters under the South China Sea on Jan 12. Then the divers returned from deep water to the living chamber on their ship. After staying in the chamber for 380 hours to let the inert gas in their tissue fluid return to normal pressure, all the six divers came out on Jan 25 with sound body conditions. This put a successful conclusion to China's first 300-meter saturation dive, sources said. (Xinhua/Guo Yijiang)
