Watch the full rescue here: PRB Rescue NSRI PORT ALFRED 20 Nov 2021

The sea rescue craft Rescue 11 Alpha was launched while NSRI rescue swimmers, our NSRI sea rescue vehicle, EC Government Health EMS and Private Care ambulance services responded.

On arrival on the scene we found a Good Samaritan, believed to be from Makanda, using an NSRI Pink Rescue Buoy, assisting a 16 year old local male out of the water.

An NSRI rescue swimmer was deployed from our sea rescue craft and he waded ashore as the Good Samaritan, and other bystanders, were helping the teenager onto the beach.

The teenager was medically assessed by paramedics before being released into the care of his family.

NSRI commend the man who saved the teenagers life using the NSRI pink rescue buoy.

This is the 81st life saved with the contribution of an NSRI Pink Rescue Buoy around the South African coastline since the program launched in 2017.
