The Eden District Municipality, together with NSRI and WESSA (Wildlife and Environmental Society of South Africa) hosted a rescue demonstration event at the Wilderness Blue Flag this weekend. During the demonstration, Sea Rescue Station 23 demonstrated a rescue from a rip current rescue and then demonstrated CPR. Drowning is a leading cause of accidental death and rip currents are a particular concern along the South African coastline. It is essential to educate the public on potentially dangerous sea conditions, to teach them what to look out for and how to respond.
