I would say:"One of them is holding a breathing device on (His) right hand.Although there are three people,(his) refers to only one of them.Individually.Please correct me if i´m wrong...this is the way i think,and i hope changing it fast,in case it´s a mistake.Cheers

Since the diver can be both male or female we decided to use 'their' instead of his/her.
