British diver dies off Abades coast

A 54-year-old British diver died this afternoon off the coast of Abades in Arico. Emergency services say that they were called out shortly before 4pm with reports that the man had been brought to land after getting into difficulties but needed assistance. A medic in the Control Room established from those helping the man that he was in fact in cardiac arrest; she then proceeded to give telephonic advice on how to attempt to resuscitate him while medical crews were dispatched. Sadly, despite the efforts of ambulance and helicopter crews, the man could not be helped and he was declared dead at the scene.
