Two visiting divers have died on consecutive days on the Maltese island of Gozo.

On Tuesday morning (24 October) a 73-year-old Danish man who had been diving at a site in the Ghajnsielem municipality in the south-east of the island was reported missing.

Emergency services called to Xatt l-Ahmar were told that the man had encountered difficulties on his dive, according to police.

After a seven-hour search carried out by Armed Forces and Civil Protection Department personnel, the diver’s body was recovered near Armier on Malta.

The following afternoon, also in Ghajnsielem, a 64-year-old German woman died after getting into difficulties while diving in Fessej Bay.

She was pronounced dead after being brought ashore, said the police, who are investigating both deaths.
