The incident at Herolds Bay, on Wednesday, has again highlighted the efficacy of NSRI Pink Rescue Buoys posted around the coastline and on inland waterways.

A father, age 36, and his daughter, age 11, from Sandton, Johannesburg, will thankfully see 2023 through together, thanks to 2 NSRI pink rescue buoys used in their rescue, that contributed to saving their lives at Herolds Bay, on Wednesday, said Dr Cleeve Robertson, NSRI CEO.

Then on Sunday, 26 November, during an outgoing Spring tide in the afternoon, NSRI pink rescue buoys were deployed in bystander rescue operations at Kabeljous Beach, Jeffreys Bay, at Saunders Beach, Bantry Bay and at Sunset Beach, Table View.

In Bantry Bay a Good Samaritan bystander used an NSRI pink rescue buoy, stationed at the beach by the tidal pool, to successfully rescue a 49-year-old local man from the water.

At Kabeljous Beach, Jeffreys Bay, 3 NSRI pink rescue buoys contributed to 2 females and a male (a dad and his 2 daughters), who were successfully rescued from the water by bystanders, using pink rescue buoys, and which included a girl using a bodyboard.

At Sunset Beach, Table View, reportedly 2 young men got into difficulty in the surf. One managed to get out of the water but his friend was in grave distress before, it is believed, a Good Samaritan bystander used an NSRI pink rescue buoy to successfully rescue the casualty from the water.
