NSRI and the Emergency Services have expressed sincere condolences to family and friends of Cameron Dalziel, 43, who was tragically a victim of the Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 crash.Cameron started a colourful rescue career as a lifeguard with Lifesaving South Africa stationed at Umhlanga and was amongst the first helicopter rescue swimmer lifeguards during the days of the John Rolfe surf rescue helicopter.His interest in flying was spawned from this involvement and when the helicopter rescue program switched to Nokia Surf Rescue Cameron was one of the rescue pilots flying rescue missions along the Durban coastline.Cameron then flew as rescue pilot during the full stint of the Vodacom / Netcare 911 surf rescue helicopter program and he is described by friends and colleagues and in the rescue fraternity as a highly committed super pilot, a larger than life character who lived life to the fullest.Andre Fletcher, NSRI Durban deputy station commander, who flew as rescue swimmer on rescue helicopters piloted by Cameron on countless missions paid tribute to this excellent rescue pilot who was highly experienced and highly regarded by all.Cameron flew for CHC in Mocambique and had recently transferred to fly for CHC in Malaysia. He had completed simulator training in Amsterdam and was returning to Malaysia when tragedy struck.He was due to return to South Africa in two weeks for a holiday.We pay tribute to this excellent pilot and express thoughts of sincere sympathy to his wife and two sons.cameron Pic Source: Facebook.
