A woman from Orechov, a village on the outskirts of Brno, is missing on Bali since Friday. A 41 year-old diver separated from her group during a morning dive and he did not join her colleagues near a cliff where she was supposed to join them. Boat and choppers began a rescue operation but with no results whatsoever.

According to a diving instructor, also a Czech, who is a member of the group the woman was not experienced enough and did not follow applicable rules.

We are only hoping for a miracle, he said yesterday to a colleague of mine who is covering the story.¨

More to come as we follow this developing story during the day…

UPDATE: The name and passport number of the woman has been confirmed. The rescue (or just search?) operation is in process. According to one Jakarta newspaper two Czech divers died on the very same spot last year…
