NSRI St Francis Bay responded to main beach Cape St Francis today, Wednesday, 04th February, following reports of a man in difficulty in the surf.
On arrival on-scene it was found that two female surfers, known only as the Watts girls, but otherwise unidentified, had rescued a Swiss man aged in his mid 20’s. While surfing they had reportedly noticed the man in difficulty and had gone to his aid, managing to get him safely to shore, but no further information regarding the incident is available to NSRI.
The man was transported to hospital by Private Care ambulance in a serious but stable condition suffering near drowning symptoms but has since been reported to be recovering well.
