One of the four divers who went missing since yesterday after they went diving in the seas near Mount Lavinia was rescued this morning. He was rescued by some fisherman while floating in the sea.

The fishermen said they noticed the man struggling with waves about 18 miles off shore. The saved diver Olivenzo Arnold said they were engaging in under water filming  from Mt. Lavinia to Panadura when they were carried by a current. He said the others were floating about one kilometer away from him when he saw them last. A group of Navy divers in three rescue boats left immediately with him to the location in search of the three disappeared men. (Kusal Chamath)
