Diver found dead off island of Mykonos

Members of the Hellenic Navy's Underwater Demolitions Unit were on Tuesday attempting to retrieve the body of a 43-year-old diver who was discovered by other divers off the Platys Gialos beach on the island of Mykonos.

The 43-year-old had been a member of the crew of the British-flagged Sea Dragon vessel which had been doing dives in the area.

Two non-professional divers found him on Monday after he went missing. However in their attempt to retrieve him, one of the divers experienced a problem that led them to abort the rescue attempt, surface and contact the authorities.
