South Africa: Spear diver hit by boat propeller

A diver in South Africa was injured after a boat ran over him.

The incident, in Melkbossstrand on the country's Western Cape, reportedly involved a 71-year-old diver who suffered lacerations to his buttocks after the helmsman of a motorboat failed to see him and drove over him.

The diver, who was reported to have been spear-fishing with two others, was airlifted to hospital, where he was described as being in a stable condition.
