Poole Paramedic Dies In Maldives Diving Accident
A paramedic from Poole has died in the Maldives.
Dai Rees was involved in a diving accident on Sunday (16 March).
The 30-year-old was out on the islands, which are in the Indian Ocean, doing charity work, providing emergency response training.
Ken Wenman, Chief Executive of South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust, said:
"Tragically Dai was involved in a diving accident whilst carrying out charity work in the Maldives.
"Dai was involved in a group that are hoping to establish a not-for-profit organisation that will work in partnership with the Trust to increase the capacity of communities in developing countries to deliver pre-hospital emergency medical services through training, consultancy and the provision of specialist equipment.
“Dai was a well liked and respected member of staff and on behalf of the Trust I would like to offer my condolences to his family, friends and work colleagues.”
