Crew praised after diver’s life saved
THE crew of a North Sea support vessel have been praised for saving the life of a diver who was stranded nearly 300ft underwater with no air line.
He was found unconscious on the seabed after an equipment malfunction thrust the boat forward, severing the connection which had been supplying him with oxygen.
But thanks to a heroic effort by the vessel’s master and fellow divers, the man was rescued and resuscitated – more than 30 minutes after getting into trouble.
