NSRI Gqeberha duty crew were activated following reports of a drowning in progress at Wells Estate Beach

Patrick Brown, NSRI Gqeberha duty coxswain, said:

The sea rescue craft Spirit of Surfski 4 was launched and our NSRI rescue vehicle, Coastal Water Rescue and the SA Police Services responded to join Metro lifeguards searching for a 15 year old local male who had reportedly disappeared in the surf zone while wading into the surf.

On arrival on the scene an extensive sea and shoreline search revealed no sign of the teenager.

A Police Dive Unit, assisted by lifeguards, will continue in an ongoing search.

Thoughts are with the family of the teenager in this difficult time.
