Navy leads recovery of diver’s body from Gustloff wreck

Navy divers will extract the body of a diver found on the wreck of the German ship Wilhelm Gustloff. As the District Prosecutor’s Office in Lębork informed, a ship has already been sent to the site, whose crew will carry out the entire operation.

The body found on the 5th of June will allow to carry out necessary actions which will help to determine the identity of the diver. There are many indications that this is Robert Szlecht, an inhabitant of Poznan who went missing in July 2012.

The prosecutor’s office had already announced that, if sea conditions allow, the excavation operation was planned for the last week of June. Now, however, it has been officially made public that a Polish Navy vessel has been sent to the site.

From the information we have, we know that if everything goes according to plan, the action is expected to end today, or Tuesday 25 June at the latest.

[blockquote style=”1″]”The investigation is carried out under the supervision of the prosecutor’s office, but when it comes to pulling out the remains, there are technical activities. The prosecutor will be present in Łeba, where these remains will be transported and an inspection will be made. It will be more so tomorrow. The reference prosecutor will be there, but I see no reason why it shouldn’t be Wednesday. It all depends on how technically difficult it will be to extract the remains and the equipment which is there, in the possession of this diver. These are all speculations. It’s hard to say how long it will take. I suspect that it will be an operation lasting several hours. It will be a deep dive, 45 metres and it all depends on the conditions. There is a police officer on board. We will get information from him.” – said Patryk Wegner, head of the District Prosecutor’s Office in Lębork[/blockquote].

Apart from the comparative DNA material test, a lot of information can also be provided by the equipment. In addition to the dive computer, which, among other things, will provide a record of the last dive after a battery change, there are also a number of very distinctive pieces of equipment.

If it turns out that the remains found are those of Robert Szlecht, the investigation into his disappearance will be reopened.
