After arriving at the scene by helicopter, rescuers continued cardiopulmonary resuscitation for a long time, but the injured man could not be saved. Local police and prosecutors are now investigating the cause of the tragedy.

The Leštinka quarry, which belongs to a private owner, is partly used by divers and is a popular place for training and practising your own skills. The locality has a reputation of a safe diving site where accidents usually do not occur. Previously, a similar incident took place 8 years ago, in 2011.
