NSRI records two sea drownings in the Cape

Authorities recovered the body of a man at Mnandi Beach on Friday after he went missing at sea last Sunday.

CAPE TOWN – The National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) has recorded two drownings at sea – one at Mnandi Beach, another in Milnerton – while the search continues for a missing boy.

Authorities recovered the body of a man at Mnandi Beach on Friday after he went missing at sea last Sunday.

Meanwhile, at Lagoon Beach in Milnerton, paramedics and other officials responded to the drowning of a 13-year-old boy.

“Sadly, despite advanced life-support CPR efforts, the teenager was declared deceased. Police officers have opened an inquest docket and his body has been taken by forensic pathology services,” said NSRI’s Craig Lambinon.

AVOID SEALS, BEACHGOERS WARNED

Meanwhile, Cape Town beachgoers are being warned not to get too close to seals.

With summer approaching and more relaxed lockdown restrictions, visitors will be flocking to the waters.

However, the Helderberg Wildlife Rescue urged the public to steer clear of any seal they encounter and to give them space to rest.

The organisation said the land mammals which hunt in the ocean and spend hours on dry land can react to unwanted attention and attack.

It said seals are also carriers of bacteria, which can cause infection and if left untreated, could be fatal to humans.
