UPDATE (01/03/22): The three (3) recovered divers were identified as Yusef Henry, Fyzal Kurban and Kazim Ali Jr. Their bodies were positively identified by family members at the Forensic Science Centre in St. James on Tuesday 1st March 2022.
However, due to the mangled state of the bodies from the trauma they experienced in the pipeline, family members had to use alternative means to identify them:
Several families plunged into deep sadness tonight (Monday 28th February 2022) when Paria Fuel Trading Company Limited announced the recovery of the bodies of three (3) of the four (4) divers who went missing on Friday 25th February 2022.
Paria said the bodies of these three (3) missing divers were recovered around 5:55pm this evening. “The families of the deceased were first to be notified simultaneously at 6pm by Paria. Attempts to retrieve the fourth body are still ongoing.”
Paria said it joins the families in mourning their loss and is “continuing to provide support and counselling as they deal with this profound loss.”
The four (4) men were part of a LMCS Limited crew conducting an underwater maintenance exercise at #36 Sealine Riser on Berth #6 at Paria, Pointe-a-Pierre when the incident occurred.
Paria added, “No effort was spared in the attempts to treat the bodies with the utmost respect during the recovery operation. A full investigation into the incident will be undertaken to understand the root cause of the incident.”
Paria said it joins LMCS Limited and the families in their time of grief.
