SCUBA DIVER FOUND IN POLICE CELL

A missing South African diver has been found in a police cell. In the meantime a rescue helicopter with thermal imaging detectors and National Sea Rescue Institute search squad had been dispatched to search for the 42 year old after a man had reported that his friend had not returned from a dive at Cape Town’s St. James’s Beach and it was going dark.

Rescue team spokesman, Craig Lambinon, told the press, 'Fortunately, the mother of the missing man informed us that her son had just called her and that he was locked up in the cells of a police station after apparently being arrested by law enforcement agencies for allegedly being found diving in a protected marine reserve without a permit... All rescue resources were stood down as they were no longer required and the man's friend was relieved to find out that he was alive and well.'
