At 11h00, Saturday, 28th July, NSRI St Francis Bay duty crew were activated following reports of a boat capsized in the Kromme River Mouth.
The sea rescue craft Spirit of St Francis II and Rescue 21 Alpha were launched with NSRI paramedics and rescue swimmers onboard and our sea rescue vehicle with NSRI rescue swimmers responded to the scene.
Private Care ambulance services were activated.
On arrival on the scene we found a Canal Boat with 3 local adult males onboard capsized in the surfline in the river mouth and all 3 men were in the surfline attempting to swim to shore in the surf.
NSRI rescue swimmers were deployed into the water and at that stage the 3 casualties had reached chest deep water and our rescue swimmers assisted the 3 men to wade out of the surf safely onto the beach.
All 3 men were checked by our NSRI paramedics and found to not be injured and we recovered their boat and no further assistance was required.
