Chioggia, Venezia. Sub padovano muore in immersione vicino al relitto
CHIOGGIA (Venice) A diver died Sunday off Chioggia after losing consciousness while doing a group dive in the area of the tegnue, a marine area of particular natural beauty, about 7 miles from the port of the town. The victim, Mauro Baldina, was 56 years old and lived in Piove di Sacco (Padua). The causes of death are not yet clear; the man was noticed floating in a state of unconsciousness by a companion, who gave the alarm. He may have misunderstood the amount of air left in the cylinders, or having been caught by an illness during the ascent phase. The diver was rescued by a patrol boat from the Port Authorities, but despite the resuscitation attempts, the doctors had to pay the death. The incident occurred not far from another area famous for diving, due to the presence on the bottom of the wreck of the ship Evdokia, which two years ago cost the life of a diver stuck inside the carcass of the boat.
