It sounds like they used explosives to open up the wreck. This isn't something your average scuba diver would do. Moreover, this wreck lays in more than 100m of water. This isn't an un-divable depth but there are very few (if any) recreational divers with the capabilities to blow a hole in the wreck with explosives and then go inside on scuba to salvage stuff.

This is pure speculation on my part but it seems much more plausible to me that it was a more "commercial" type operation with access to explosives and likely ROV's. I would seriously doubt that anyone actually got wet doing this.
