French freediver who broke a female world record by diving to a depth of 130 meters underwater on a single breath. She passed away during a practice dive of 171 meters in 2002 and was posthumously inducted into the Women Divers Hall of Fame later that year.
She grew up in a family of diving and snorkeling enthusiasts in France. She moved to Mexico City as a teenager and later studied marine biology at a university in La Paz.
In 2006, Carlos Serra published a book about her fatal dive called The Last Attempt, in which he placed responsibility for her depth primarily on her husband's negligence during the dive.
She was married to famed fellow freediver Francisco Ferreras from 1999 until her death.
She and England's William Trubridge are both famous freedivers.
