British Diver lost at sea in Egypt

-

Hopes are fading as Egyptian rescue boats continue the search for a British tourist who was lost on Sunday while scuba diving in the Red Sea. Three boats have been focusing their search in an area 13 kilometres (eight miles) south of the Red Sea port town of Safaga, where the tourist was last seen on Saturday.

The 45-year-old Briton, who has not yet been named, was among a group of 12 British scuba divers.  The rest of the group made it safely to shore.

Essam Mahran, in charge of rescue operations with the Red Sea Association for Diving and Marine Activities, said the tourist was an experienced diver, but hopes of rescuing him were dimming.

Fatal scuba diving accidents occur almost annually in the Red Sea.
