UNDERWATER AGENT: A Guardia Civil diver

A BRITISH diver has died off the coast of Cartagena, Murcia.

The body of the diver was recovered from a 99-year-old shipwreck.

The 50-year-old was on a dive with three other divers, also Brits, who called emergency services when their companion was 45 minutes late for their scheduled meeting.

Agents from the Guardia Civil Underwater Activities Special Group (GEAS) recovered the diver’s body from the ancient wreckage named Stanfield.

  1. This is another hobby that will always carry a real risk of death, just like the Russian free diver that died of Mallorca. These people know the risks they run and accept it.

  2. Point is that most readers will know that and don’t need the lesson, which appears to say these deaths were less important somehow. That’s why it was a worthless comment, as it is not compulsory, Stuart Crawford, to make your views known on every article.
