The incident happened off Wexford's Hook Head this evening. 

The father of four in his forties was taking part in an underwater search for a fisherman who went missing from a trawler off the Saltee Islands yesterday morning. 

The alert was raised shortly after noon today as he returned to the surface after a dive. 

He was treated by colleagues at the scene and airlifted to University Hospital Waterford where he has since been pronounced dead.
