PORT EDWARD: At 06h50, Saturday, 23rd July, NSRI Port Edward duty crew were activated following a request for assistance from a bystander reporting his neighbour injured at her residence in Munster.NSRI medics responded to the scene and a 63 year old female was treated for a suspected hip and lower back injury sustained in a fall. An ambulance was summoned and the patient was handed into the care of paramedics and transported to hospital by ambulance in a stable condition.KNYSNA: Declan Nurse, NSRI Knysna deputy station commander, said: At 09h45, Sunday, 24th July, NSRI Knysna duty crew launched the sea rescue craft Colorpress Rescuer and Jaytee IV after our station commander noticed a yacht appearing to be in difficulty in the Knysna Heads.On arrival on the scene, outside the Heads, crew aboard the yacht Outeniqua confirmed that they had motor mechanical failure (gear box problems) and had been swept out the Heads in an outgoing tide after they had stopped off for a while just inside of the Heads while returning from filming (with a film crew onboard). The film crew (4 persons) were taken aboard one of the sea rescue craft and two NSRI crew were put aboard the yacht.The film crew were brought through the Heads and transferred onto the rigid inflatable craft Moonraker belonging to Knysna Rib Adventures who took the film crew to the Knysna Quays safely without incident. The sea rescue craft returned to Outeniqua and the 2 NSRI crew were taken off the yacht. The yacht was going to come in through the Heads once the tide changed and our sea rescue craft returned to base.Later, at 13h55, as a precautionary measure, NSRI launched the same 2 sea rescue craft and towed the yacht through the Heads to Knysna Quays after they had been unable to rectify their gear box problems and the yacht was towed safely to her berth without incident and no further assistance was required.TO REPORT A SEA RESCUE EMERGENCY DIAL 112 FROM A CELLPHONEFile image File image
