Dangerous conditions at sunken wreck of Santa Ana
Salvage divers planned to make two dives around the wreck of the "Santa Ana" off Cabo Peñas on Mar 12 in order to study the possibilities of access to the wreck. Six missing crew were believed to have been trapped in their cabins. On MAr 11 two divers descened to the wreck in a depth of 30 meters and managed to close in to four meters from the wreck but declined due to the the dangerous surroundings. The wreck was resting on submerged rocks in an area with strong currents and waves which caused the ship to be continuously swaying. The low visibility and the presence of nets and rigging made diving operations even more complex, so it might take several days. 14 divers of the Asturias Civil Guard were expected to start working in the area on Mar 13. The second skipper Manuel Simal Sande, meanwhile has left the hospital of San Agustin de Avilés where he had been treated for hypothermia and multiple bruises. The first skipper of the ship, the Portuguese Fragateiro Francisco Gomes and the Chief Engineer Manuel Indalecio May Brea from Muros were recovered dead. Still missing were ManuelMaría Tajes, Lucas José Mayo Abeijón, Marcos del Agua Chacón, Víctor José Farinhas Braga and the Indonesian Suherman. Spanish report with photos: www.heraldo.es/no...
