A WOMAN diver was feared dead last night after she got entangled in ropes in a notorious North Wales quarry.
A diving companion desperately tried to help after the Cheshire woman got stuck in the dark waters of Dorothea Quarry yesterday afternoon.
But he was forced to surface after suffering from the bends, leaving police divers to search for her body.
It is the first death in Dorothea in almost three years.
The rescued diver was flown by helicopter to Murrayfield Hospital, Wirral, at around 3pm.
He was being treated in a decompression chamber.
Coastguard crews, North Wales Police, paramedics and RAF Valley attended the scene.
