Lucky escape for group of divers in trouble off Arico coast

Emergency services were called out just before noon today to assist eight scuba divers who had got into difficulties some 50m off the coast of Playa de las Eras in Arico.  A 61-year-old Swedish woman needed to be taken to HUC after nearly drowning, but the others were successfully rescued, some by bathers at the beach assisting the diving instructor, while two others were collected by search and rescue helicopter.
