This video has been sped up to better show the rip current flow .. and how strong the pull is. Dappat se Gat (also known as Caves) near Gordons Bay is a dangerous beach. Please do not swim there.
If a swimmer is caught in the rip current do not go in to the water to help them.
1.Throw something that floats to them.
2.Call for help (112 from your cell phone) and tell the operator that you need Sea Rescue, give them your location and tell them and what the emergency is.
3.Use hand signals to show the person that they must swim to the side of the rip to get to the sandbank and out of the rip current.
