Accident during record dive in Lake Garda

Disturbing reports are coming from Italy. According to local media, there was an accident in the waters of Lake Garda involving a Polish diver who was about to dive to a depth of 330 metres. The diver did not return to the surface and a search is currently underway.

The dive took place on Saturday, 13 October. When the diver failed to turn up within the allotted time limit, lifeguards were immediately called in and carried out a search until late in the evening. Unfortunately, without results. The search resumed this morning, but there is still no concrete information.

The laconic media releases from Italy inform only about the accident of a Polish diver, during an attempt at a record-breaking dive – allegedly to a depth of 330 metres, and that the dive was conducted from the beach, i.e. exactly where Krzysztof Starnawski and Jarek Macedonski conducted their record-breaking dives.

Our first instinct was to call Jarek, but according to our assumptions, he is currently on his way back from Italy and knows nothing about the whole incident. We are still following the news from Italy and will try to keep you updated on further findings.

In recent times the Garda lake has become extremely popular among Polish divers, aiming for depths of more than 300 metres. First, on 10 September Krzysztof Starnawski set his record by descending to the depth of 303 metres, and an equal month later, on 10 October, Jarek Macedoński improved this result by diving to the depth of 316 metres.
