Theo Erasmus, NSRI Witsand station commander, said:
At 05h30 on Monday, 28 August, the sister of a 57 year old female resident informed NSRI that her sister suffered a suspected stroke at home in Witsand.
Our NSRI medical crew responded and WC Government Health EMS was activated.
The patient was treated by our NSRI Medics and on arrival of the Ambulance she was taken into the care of EMS paramedics and transported to hospital by EMS ambulance in a stable condition for further treatment.
Stuart Brink, NSRI Plettenberg Bay duty controller, said:
At 11h14, NSRI Plettenberg duty crew were activated following reports from the Plettenberg Bay Beach Control of two men far out to sea off-shore of Wedge Beach and suspected to be in difficulty.
Bitou lifeguards had also been activated and our sea rescue craft Airlink Rescuer was launched.
On arrival on the scene we found lifeguards in attendance at both men, from Johannesburg, aged 39 and 35, who were both safely ashore and they were not injured and we believe that they may not have been in difficulty but just far out to sea which had raised concerns and no further assistance was required.
