2010 Incident #23 29.04.10 1228UTC #1468

The IRT was tasked to investigate the circumstances surrounding an urgent  ‘Pan Pan’ radio call issued from a local dive vessel.   A 65 year old male  diver was airlifted to hospital after he was recovered unconscious into the vessel.  This followed a dive on a local wreck, the Moidart.  Despite the best efforts of his colleagues, the boat crew and the paramedics to resuscitate the casualty,  he was declared dead on arrival at hospital.  All members of the Coastguard service and our colleagues at the RNLI would like to extend our deepest sympathies to both his family and friends.
