Late in the evening on Friday, 22 April, a diving accident involving two women occurred on a pier in Sopot. One of them was in the water about 200 m from the shore and called for help. Outside witnesses of the event responded to the call. They pulled the second, unconscious woman ashore and started resuscitation.

Shortly after, four rescuers from the Sopot WOPR arrived on the scene and continued CPR. The police also arrived at the scene of the accident fire brigade and the police. The injured woman was taken from the WOPR lifeguards by a state medical rescue team and taken to hospital in a very serious condition, where the woman unfortunately died.

At around 20.40 we received a report of people in the water near the pier calling for help. A prevention patrol was urgently sent to the spot. When the officers arrived at the scene, lifeguards were already resuscitating a woman who had been pulled from the water to the shore. According to preliminary findings, she had been diving with other people near the pier. When she and another woman were emerging from the water onto the shore, the accident occurred. The 48-year-old woman was taken to hospital in a very serious condition, where she died.

We informed the public prosecutor of the incident and, in consultation with him, carried out on-the-spot investigations. The prosecutor also ordered an autopsy to be carried out on the body of the 48-year-old in order to determine the exact cause of death. The investigation is still in progress and we are explaining the circumstances of the incident in detail. Further actions are planned for today, including the questioning of witnesses We were informed by the spokesman of the police in Sopot.

At the moment, there are no details about the causes of the whole incident. The case is being investigated by the police and the prosecution.
