The Guardia Civil in Pontevedra (Galicia) are trying to locate the owner of a leisure craft that hit a diver and killed him.
The diver had been using all the necessary safety devices including the regulation marker buoys to show that there was a diver below the surface in that area.
The deceased man had been diving off Punta Cabicastro with a diving companion when the speedboat struck the diver as he surfaced. Far from stopping to see how the diver was, the culprit sped off.
The blow provoked a cardiac arrest and by the time that the emergency services could reach him, he was already dead and there was nothing that they could do for him.
