MOSSEL BAY:Andre Fraser, NSRI Mossel Bay station commander, said: At 12h06, Thursday, 29th December, NSRI Mossel Bay duty crew dispatched sea rescue swimmers directly to Glentana Beach and 2 NSRI sea rescue craft were launched following reports of a drowning in progress.The SA Police Services and ER24 ambulance services were also activated.On arrival on the scene a 41 year old man and his 10 year old daughter were already on the beach after being swept out to sea by rip currents.We believe 2 friends had gone into the water to assist them, and they had managed to get the 41 year old man to the beach while the 10 year old daughter is believed to have reached the beach without assistance.CPR (Cardio Pulmonary resuscitation) efforts were performed on the 41 year old man but after all efforts to resuscitate him were exhausted he was declared deceased.One of the friends, a 21 year old Pretoria man, and the 10 year old girl, were transported to hospital suffering non-fatal drowning symptoms. Both are in stable conditions.The body of the deceased man has been taken into the care of the Forensic Pathology Services and Police have opened an inquest docket.Our sincere condolences to the family.gr-glentana
