Relatives of the missing divers are demanding answers from Paria as they await confirmation that the bodies of the divers have been found.

The bodies of three of the four divers who were trapped in a Paria Fuel pipeline since Friday have been recovered.

The bodies were removed from the pipe this afternoon and the families of the three men have been informed by the company.

The incident occurred around 3 pm Friday just off the Pointe-a-Pierre jetty as five divers employed with LMCS Ltd were conducting an underwater maintenance exercise at No 36 Sealine Riser on Berth #6.

The men were sucked into the pipeline and while one managed to free himself, the other four remained trapped since then.

As news broke, grieving relatives attempted to storm into the gates of Paria Fuel Trading Limited on Monday evening.

President of the First Wave Movement Umar Abdullah called on the relatives to stay calm but he was shouted down.

“Nonsense, this is a waste of time. Its three days now we are waiting,” a relative of diver Yusuff Henry shouted before she broke down in tears.

“Today is Monday and we have no word,” another relative shouted.
