56 year old Markus Meier was found dead in the water near the wreck of a ship called ‘Jura’. He was diving alone and the alarm was raised when a friend called for help when he failed to surface.

The shipwreck is a kilometer from the shore and is 38 meters deep. The boat sank in 1864 and is a popular diving spot.

Meier owned the pharmacy on Marktgasse which bears his name.
