SEA RESCUE – Clifton – Sunday, 26th October, 2014. Woman drowns:
Bruce Davidson, NSRI Bakoven station commander, said:
'At 14h34, Sunday, 26th October, NSRI Bakoven duty crew were activated following reports of a drowning in progress at Moses Beach, near to Clifton 1st beach, between Clifton and Bantry Bay.
'Our NSRI Bakoven volunteer sea rescue duty crew launched ROTARIAN SCHIPPER and responded.
'The SA Police Services, WC Government Health EMS, the Red Cross AMS Skymed rescue helicopter, Clifton Surf lifeguards, Community Medics, Life Health Care response paramedics, ER24 ambulance services, Netcare 911 ambulance services and Cape Town Fire and Rescue Services and their rescue dive unit responded.
“An NSRI Table Bay sea rescue craft, ROTARY ENDEAVOR, that was on the water at the time conducting routine exercises responded to assist.
'On arrival on-scene an unidentified woman, in her early 20’s, was found on the rocks with bystanders performing Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) on her.
'Paramedics continued with Advanced Life Support CPR but despite extensive CPR efforts and after all efforts to resuscitate her were exhausted on the scene she was declared deceased by paramedics.
'Her body has been taken into the care of the Police and of the Forensic Pathology Services.
'Bystanders had noticed her sitting on the rocks on the shore throughout the morning when it appeared that she had gone into the water in what they suspected was to cool down, although fully clothed, but she then appeared to get into difficulty on the rocky shoreline and had attempted to get out of the water over the rocks and while eye-witnesses were raising the alarm she was seen to be floating face down in the water being swept out by currents.
'According to eye-witness reports an unidentified man had jumped into the water and he had rescued her bringing her onto the rocks where a group of bystanders attempted CPR efforts before emergency personnel arrived on the scene.'IMG-20141026-WA0001 IMG-20141026-WA0002
