Just before 12pm on Friday, police in Møre og Romsdal said a man had been taken to Kristiansund by boat after a diving accident.
Per Åge Ferstad, head of operations for the Møre and Romsdal police district, says he was alerted to the accident by another person who was diving in the area. He was part of a group.

The person who died in the accident was a 60-year-old Finnish citizen. Police wrote that the next of kin were notified just before 10 p.m.
