Diver Dies in Hospital Following Lifeboat Operation off St Abb’s Head in Scotland

-

A 62-year-old man has died following difficulties when diving off the Borders coast at St Abb’s Head in Scotland.

The diver, who had become distressed when diving, was taken on board an Eyemouth dive boat on Saturday morning.

Crew members of the St Abbs independent lifeboat, which had been called out at about 10:30, attended to the diver.

He was picked up by a Coastguard Rescue helicopter and was taken to the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh but later died.

Two RNLI lifeboats from Eyemouth joined the St Abbs lifeboat to search the area for a further 30 minutes, but no other diver was reported missing.
