CCTV footage capturing the moment a group of youngsters appear to have made off with an NSRI Pink Rescue Flotation Buoy has been posted to the NSRI web page www.nsri.org.za and to the NSRI Facebook page.NSRI appeal to them to return it to NSRI or return it to its pole on the beach at Jeffreys Bay.The buoy was taken from Point, at Jeffreys Bay, a popular surfing spot.The footage shows what appears to be 3 young males taking the buoy to their car. Bystanders have come forward saying that they had confronted the group in a heated exchange but, despite being advised to return the buoy to the pole, they continued to load the buoy into a small hatchback, red car with Eastern Cape registration plates and drove off.If anyone recognises the persons in the CCTV footage please contact NSRI.These Pink Buoys are a joint NSRI and public effort in one of many campaigns launched this year to prevent drowning around our coast.A pink rescue buoy in Wilderness has already helped to save the life of a teenager.Dr Cleeve Robertson, NSRI CEO, has urged anyone finding a pink buoy to alert NSRI. Pink buoys are unique to NSRI and are installed on beaches in the interests of public safety.TO REPORT A SEA RESCUE EMERGENCY DIAL 112 FROM A CELLPHONE
