Spearfisherman injured by boat off Myconos

A 36-year-old man was recovering in a clinic on the island of Myconos yesterday after a boat hit him while he was spearfishing between the coast of Myconos and Delos.

According to the local coast guard, the diver had taken all the necessary precautions to alert others to his presence.

Despite those measures, a speedboat in the area crossed over the patch where he was diving, clipping his leg in the process and leaving him with serious injuries.

After the accident, the 36-year-old was transferred to the beach aboard the boat of the friend who had been spearfishing with him.
