SEA RESCUE – Richards Bay – Wednesday, 20th May. Patient Evacuation off ship:
At midday on Wednesday the 20th of May, NSRI Richards Bay duty crew were placed on alert by the Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA) to prepare for the arrival of the bulk carrier CANON TRADER I, sailing from India to Richards Bay, and reporting a 25 year old Filipino crewman onboard suffering dehydration and stomach cramps.
Cornel du Toit, NSRI Richards Bay station commander, said:
'At 19h00, the vessel arrived at anchorage and we launched SPIRIT OF RICHARDS BAY, accompanied by a Netcare 911 rescue paramedic. On arrival NSRI rescue crew and the paramedic were transferred aboard the ship where they treated the patient with intravenous fluid therapy and oxygen. He was then secured into a Stokes basket stretcher and transferred aboard our sea rescue craft to be brought ashore. A Netcare 911 ambulance has transported the patient to hospital in a stable condition for further treatment.
