Divers Back in Dorothea before the Body of Its Latest Victim Was Found


Byline: ERYL CRUMP

DOZENS of divers returned to Dorothea Quarry yesterday just hours after the deep,dark pool claimed its seventh life in little more than two years.

Police divers brought in a special underwater robot to search for Jason Steven Dean,from Wallasey, yesterday,after an initial search failed to find him.

Emergency crews were alerted after Mr Dean failed to surface at the flooded former slate quarry at around 11.30amon Saturday.

The body of the 31-year-old was found at 4.30pm yesterday.

Mr Dean was one of a group of five divers from the Wirral area who told other divers at the quarry they planned a dive to about 30-35 metres.

Diving instructor Stewart Tattersall,from Chester, said he believed they planned to go diving at sea intially but the bad weather caused their boat trip to be cancelled.

Mr Tattersall said: ``I was preparing for a dive I heard shouting and yelling. I saw a man waving his arms about and shouting. I made my way across and helped him from the water.

``He said they had encountered problems at about 50 metres and he had made a rapid descent. He was put on oxygen until an ambulance arrived.''

The other diver was taken to Ysbyty Gwynedd,Bangor,by ambulance but he was allowed home after a check-up.

Insp Huw Roberts,of North Wales Police, said: ``An inquest will be opened.''

Mr Dean is the 21st person to die while diving in the quarry in the past 10 years.

Neighbour Margaret Owens said last night: ``We have known Jason and his wife Hayley since they moved into their home a couple of years ago.

``They were a pleasant,quiet couple who were both keen divers.''

The pool -up to 300ft deep in places and with a network of flooded tunnels and sheer drops -is a favourite training location for amateur divers from across the UK despite its notorious dangers.

Early yesterday morning around two dozen divers were preparing to take to the waters,described by experienced divers as ``the best inland diving site in Britain''.

Tony Fukes,53,from Nottingham, said: ``The diving community is small and we look out for each other. …
