Two divers were hospitalised this afternoon after being rescued from rough seas off Wied Iz-Zurrieq.

The AFM was alerted by a fisherman that the divers found themselves in difficulty while trying to get  ashore. A helicopter and a rescue launch was deployed and the two divers were winched on board the helicopter. One of them was found to be suffering the 'bends'.

Both divers were taken to Mater Dei Hospital for treatment.
