NALCHIK, August 27 (Itar-Tass) —— Kabardino-Balkaria is searching for lost Israeli diver Dmitry Sapozhnikov, 42, who went missing after the diving at the depth of 120 metres in the Goluboye Lake, which has the maximum depth of 256 metres, head of the diving centre Eduard Khuazhev told Itar-Tass on Monday. The incident occurred on August 21, but it was not made public, because the investigation into the tragedy continues, he said.
“The well-trained, qualified diver went for a solo dive on August 21, but did not surface at the planned time,” Khuazhev said. The brother of the lost diver came to the diving centre for the participation in investigating actions.
The Goluboye Lake in the Cherek district in Kabardino-Balkaria is included in the group of five karst lakes, which are situated 50 kilometres away from Nalchik in the valley of the Cherek River. The lowest lake is situated at the altitude of 809 metres above the sea level. The water in the lake is absolutely clear of the sapphire-blue colour over hydrogen sulphide admixtures.
Several world records in deepwater diving were made on the lake.
