Diver rescued after drifting off shore for three hours.
Christopher James, 49, of Merthyr Tydfil, was diving with Valley Divers at the Garland Stone near Skomer Island, off Pembrokeshire.
After the dive, as his buddy was picked up by the dive boat, Mr James drifted away.
The dive boat raised the alarm and Milford Haven Coastguard co-ordinated a search involving four lifeboats and a helicopter.
The coastguard also alerted boats in the area and a merchant ship, Galway Fisher, spotted Mr James, who had an orange surface marker buoy attached to him.
He was winched to safety by an RAF rescue helicopter. Bob Peel, watch manager at Milford Haven Coastguard, said: "This incident highlights how far a person can be carried by tidal currents in a very short space of time."
