At 03h00 on Friday, 8 July NSRI assisted police in searching for a missing Pretoria man, feared drowned at Ramsgate Beach on the KZN south coast.
Sea conditions were too rough to launch, so shore patrols were conducted during the night. At 10h00 this morning NSRI Shelly Beach volunteer duty crew launched our sea rescue craft Caltex Challenger.
From what we understand the three men had gone for a late night swim when the 22 year old male went missing and the remaining two got out of the water without assistance and raised the alarm.
Police are investigating.
