Death of another diver in Fontanazzi cave

Today’s editions of Italian news services are reporting on an accident that occurred at a well-known diving location in the Veneto region – Grotta di Fontanazzi. The victim of the accident was a young diver from Germany. Yesterday – 31 October – the emergency services were alerted by the 25-year-old’s colleagues after he failed to surface within the specified time.

The group began diving in a cave located near Solagna in the early afternoon. According to local media reports, the Germans split into two teams and began exploring one of the most popular overhead locations in Italy.

No details are available about the dive. All that is known is that the body of the German diver was found 120 metres from the cave entrance, at a depth of 18 metres. The body was retrieved by alerted divers and fire brigade rescuers. The whole operation ended in the evening at 21.05. The accident was investigated by the local prosecutor’s office.

Unfortunately, this is another fatal accident at Fontanazzi this year. On 5 January, our 29-year-old compatriot died in an Italian cave.

Fontanazzi tempts many divers with its beauty and is an extremely popular site. However, in order to dive into the depths of the karstic ooze, it is necessary to have considerable skills and relevant experience, as it is a very demanding cave. The site, especially the main drag, is ideal for practising long-distance dives, also using scooters. The maximum recorded depth is 135 metres.
