The National Sea Recue Institute on Tuesday responded to assist a fishing vessel off Smitswinkel Bay after reports that the crew were resuscitating a man on board.
According NSRI spokesperson Craig Lambinon the crew aboard the vessel were making their way towards Simonstown. He said that they then launched the rescue craft which then connected with the rescue craft off-shore of Boulders near Simonstown.
“Cape Medical Response paramedic Colette Botha was transferred from our rescue craft aboard the vessel and declared the man, believed to be approximately 56 years old, dead,” says Lambinon.
He elaborated that the body was transported from the Simonstown harbour and then handed over to the SA Police Services.
