NSRI Durban activated Ballito Specialised Rescue at 17h15, Monday, 06th April, to respond to Hole in the Wall, Salt Rock, where 11 young adults, men and women (in their early 20’s) were reportedly cut off from mainland by the spring high tide. Although reportedly in no imminent danger, a request was made to get them back to mainland rather than to wait quite some time before the low tide would enable them to walk back to mainland.NSRI Durban also dispatched a sea rescue vehicle and on arrival on the scene found that the Ballito Specialised Rescue members had set up a rope line and had brought all 11 people safely across without incident.Although the 11 were medically assessed by Netcare 911 paramedics, there were no injuries and all were released requiring no further assistance.Pic: Goolam Baghtiar Mohamed Ziaee Pic: Goolam Baghtiar Mohamed ZiaeePic: Goolam Baghtiar Mohamed Ziaee Pic: Goolam Baghtiar Mohamed ZiaeeTO REPORT A SEA RESCUE EMERGENCY DIAL 112 FROM A CELLPHONESMS 32287 with your name and a message of support for our Sea Rescue crew.
