NSRI weekend report


nsriRobert van Helsdingen, NSRI Wilderness station commander, said:

At 20h35, Saturday, 26th November, NSRI Wilderness duty crew responded to George Dam where the sea rescue craft Oscars Rescuer was launched to assist the WC Government Health EMS to locate and recover 3 local hikers who had lost their way while hiking around the dam and with nightfall they had raised the alarm.

They were located on the Northern side of George Dam and taken aboard our sea rescue craft and brought to the Slip Way on the Southern side of the dam where once safely ashore they required no further assistance.

Earlier in the day, at 16h28, we were activated to reports of a German couple being swept out to sea by rip-currents at Wilderness Beach but prior to arriving on the scene it was confirmed that surfers had assisted the couple to shore safely and no further assistance was required.

At 13h15, Sunday, 27th November, NSRI Wilderness duty crew dispatched a sea rescue vehicle to Leentjies Klip, near to the Kaaimans River Mouth, West of the Wilderness sea rescue station, following eye-witness reports of a paddle canoe flooded with a man hanging onto the paddle canoe in the surf line.

On arrival on the scene the sea rescue crew waded into the surf and assisted the 47 year old local man ashore safely and the canoe was recovered.

No further assistance was required.
