Three Divers Rescued From Malta’s Blue Grotto
A helicopter came to the air of three divers after strong currents dragged them out to sea early this month.
Malta had been experiencing very strong winds at the time of the incident.
An Italian military helicopter was diverted from a training mission to come to their aid, as were two Maltese rescue boats.
The three were winched up and taken to a waiting ambulance in St. Luke’s as a precautionary measure. They did not require medical assistance.
Not to be confused to the arguably more well-known Blue Grotto sea cave on the coast of the Italian island of Capri, Malta’s Blue Grotto refers to a number of sea caverns on its south coast.
