At 10h55, Wednesday, 10 August, NSRI Shelly Beach duty crew were activated following reports of a ski-boat capsized in the surfline while launching through the surf at the Sonny Evans Small Craft Harbour, Shelly Beach, with 3 crew onboard, a man and his wife and her father.

Med-Evac ambulance services were activated.

While our NSRI duty crew responded to prepare to launch our sea rescue craft an NSRI Shelly Beach rescue swimmer, at work at the harbour at the time, swam through the surf and he rescued the father safely to the shore.

The remaining husband and wife managed to get to shore without assistance.

The NSRI rescue tractor was used to assist to get the casualty craft to the shore where it was recovered.

Med-Evac paramedics checked on the 3 casualties and they were not injured.

The swift response is commended.
