At 16h45 on Sunday the 5th of April, NSRI Durban duty crew were activated following a request for assistance from a group of anglers, 6 local fishermen, reporting to be on Pelican Island, near to the Bluff Yacht Club, and cut off from the mainland by the Spring high tide.They had walked across to Pelican Island during low tide to fish before being caught there by the Spring high tide and although in no imminent danger they requested the NSRI’s assistance to get back to the mainland rather than wait until much later before they would be able to walk back at the next low tide. NSRI obliged without any hesitation.The Durban volunteer crew launched the sea rescue craft MEGAN II and on arrival on scene, all 6 fishermen, locals aged between 7 and 59, were taken aboard MEGAN II and transported to the mainland, where once delivered no further assistance was required.The men had reportedly only caught one small fish during their fishing trip.NSRI Durban Megan IITO REPORT A SEA RESCUE EMERGENCY DIAL 112 FROM A CELLPHONE.SMS 32287 with your name and a message of support for our Sea Rescue crew.
