Diver dies after shipwreck rescue in Whitsand Bay


A diver who was rescued after getting into difficulty on a wreck off Whitsand Bay in Cornwall has died.
The 26-year-old man from London was one of three people taken to Derriford Hospital in Plymouth after suffering from diving sickness.
The man was pronounced dead at hospital and details were being prepared for the coroner, police said.
It was believed the man, plus another man and a woman, had been exploring the James Egan Layne wreck on Saturday.
The rescue began at about 1120 BST after coastguards in Brixham were called.
One diver was airlifted to hospital, while the two others were taken to shore by lifeboat and transported to the hospital by ambulance.
