Diver Dies Near Padstow
6:02am 26th August 2014
A bank holiday trip to Cornwall has ended in tragedy.
A diver is dead - after getting into trouble near at Trevose Head, near Padstow.
It is a spot where boulders as big as houses litter the sea bed, along with the remains of wrecks.
It was around 2.30pm on Monday afternoon emergency services were scrambled.
A 63-year old was airlifted from the boat to the Royal Cornwall - but doctors could not save him.
He had been diving with a group of mates who were visiting the Duchy.
An investigation is starting into what went wrong.
A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "At half past two in the afternoon on bank holiday Monday police were notified by Falmouth Coastguard of a diver in difficulty off Trevose Head near Padstow.
"Upon attendance police were notified of a 63 year old male who had been taken from the water after getting into difficulty whist diving. The male was airlifted from the boat and conveyed to Royal Cornwall Hospital Truro where he was pronounced dead.
"An enquiry is ongoing trying to establish the exact nature of the incident. The diver is from out of the area and was diving with a group of friends at the location."
