2 Divers Found Dead in Underwater Cave Off Greek Island

August 26, 2019

ATHENS, Greece — Greek authorities say two foreign nationals have been found dead in an underwater cave off the island of Karpathos, in southeast Greece.

The two men, aged 65 and 30, had dived to a depth of 45 meters (150 feet) inside the cave Saturday. A third diver who went inside the cave turned back due to a lack of air and broke surface, without finding his companions. He then alerted the authorities.

Divers from the Greek coast guard’s Underwater Missions Team found the bodies Sunday afternoon and are in the process of retrieving them, the coast guard said.

No further details have been released about the victims or the kind of equipment they used.
