4 Divers Sucked Into Underwater Pipeline – A Delta P Tragedy

A maintenance mishap led to 4 divers being sucked into an underwater pipeline In Trinidad & Tobago, a delta p tragedy. Recovery operations are still being done as of 4 days later.

This incident was apparently caused by a failure in a pipeline component (lid/cap) that led to massive delta-P forces causing the maintenance (tech) divers to be sucked into the underwater pipeline.

The pipeline is 36 inches operated by Paria Fuel trading Company off Pointe-a-Pierre . The pipeline was under maintenance and the 4 tech divers servicing the pipeline were sucked in by delta p forces. The latest news is that only 1 of the divers were rescued and is hospitalized. Reportedly, three of the other divers bodies were recovered so far.

Recovery operations are still underway for the fourth diver. This is a developing story as of now.
