Paria CoE to view sunken hyperbaric chamber

An update on the commission of enquiry probing the Paria diving tragedy says that they may be able to view the sunken hyperbaric chamber, which was attached to the sea line where four LMCS divers lost their lives on February 25, when the commission conducts a site visit later this month.

According to the secretary to the Commission, ­Sarah Sinanan a remotely-operated vehicle would accommodate the viewing.

During a procedural hearing on September 7, commission chairman Jerome Lynch, KC, said the commission wanted to view the chamber to get an idea of what it looked like before beginning to hear evidence in the matter.

But he said the commission was unsure where the chamber was located.
