China succeeded in its first 300-metre saturation diving on Sunday morning as three divers returned safe and sound from deep water to the living chamber on the ship.

The diving bell actually reached 313.5 meters deep under the South China Sea, according to Guo Jie, on-site chief director of the experiment.

The three divers, Hu Jian, Guan Meng and Dong Meng returned to the deck of the ship at 5:09 a.m. Sunday.

The saturation diving technology enables human beings to withhold high deep water pressure by saturating the inert gas in human tissue fluid, according to Guo.

China is now working on the develpment of technology of satruation diving of 500 metres deep under sea, said Wang Zhenliang, director of the China Rescue and Salvage of the Ministry of Transport.
