A student died during an underwater challenge at his brother's 21st birthday party, an inquest heard. Dominic Hamlyn, 24, became unresponsive while swimming at the family home in Crundale, Kent, on 28 July. His father, neurosurgeon Peter Hamlyn, said he had been performing the same "party trick" since he was a child.
