“Once on scene, the casually was assessed and safely transferred to the lifeboat for the journey back to Oban. The lifeboat then made best speed back towards her berth, where the casualty was transferred to a waiting ambulance, and on to the decompression chamber at Dunstaffnage by 12.20pm.”
The diver’s condition is not known.
