Alarm this morning in the stretch of sea in front of the Capo Noli hotel for a diver in difficulty.

The distress signal arrived around 12.00.

On the spot, in addition to medical personnel, the arrival of the Grifo helicopter, which landed on the beach to allow rapid transport to the hospital.

To be rescued was a woman, who accused respiratory problems, perhaps caused by a defect in the equipment or by a sudden illness or more: the exact causes are still being ascertained.

The other divers who were with her during a dive noticed the problem, then dragged her to shore to wait for rescuers.

The woman accused serious respiratory problems: she was brought ashore by the other divers who were with her, before the intervention of the health workers and the emergency transport to the Genoese hospital with the Grifo helicopter.

Transferred to the hyperbaric chamber for the treatment and therapy of the case, she is now in intensive care, under close medical observation awaiting an evolution of the clinical picture.

The woman, originally from Puglia, is a resident of Brescia: she was in Noli in the company of other divers for one of the usual dives that take place in this period, particularly in the Noli and Finale stretch of sea.
