Findings to date on the Tralovac accident

Despite the many contradictory reports immediately following yesterday’s tragic events in the Bay of Gdansk, we have managed to gather information from which the course of yesterday’s events emerges.

The dive team in which the accident occurred was conducting a dive from shore. The team consisted of three divers, one of whom was certified as an instructor. All divers were using open circuits in a twin 2x12l and stage 50 cylinder configuration.

The purpose of the dive is not known, but the group was seen by another team at the railing line, not far from the wreck of the trawler. It should also be noted that visibility on the trawler was very poor that day.

We know from eyewitness accounts that 2 divers surfaced, signalling a problem and calling for help, about 200 metres from the site of the wreck of the trawler.

Help was provided by a passing coastguard vessel (RIB), which took the casualty on board and transported him quickly to shore. Here he was assisted by the crew of the RIB and another diver who had already completed his dive.

The casualty was unconscious throughout and cardiopulmonary resuscitation was required. CPR was performed until the arrival of the fire brigade, which took over. Unfortunately, the injured diver could not be saved.

From the above information we can conclude that the dive was conducted on minesweeperand the information about Bryza appeared as a result of radio announcements about a rescue operation in this area.

We know from eyewitness accounts that a pressure gauge connected to the victim’s back gas, indicated a pressure of 0 Bar.
