Diver with bends taken to hospital


Two divers suffering from with the diving problem of the bends were airlifted to hospital after suffering from the life threatening problem earlier this week just off Skomer Island.

Milford Haven Coastguard was alerted regarding the situation about 1230 BST and the RAF Search and Rescue Sea King helicopter from RAF Chivenor in Devon was tasked to the incident.

The two divers plus another diver who was feeling unwell but did not have the bends, or decompression sickness, were flown by the SaR Sea King to Withybush Hospital.
