The NSRI fears another two people may have drowned within a hundred meters of where an angler was swept off the rocks near the Wilderness in the Southern Cape yesterday.
“NSRI Wilderness rescue swimmers and our rescue craft raced back to the scene after Police reported that another two people had gotten into difficulty almost at the same place but just 100 metres away,” said NSRI spokesperson Hennie Niehaus.
Niehaus confirmed that a Sangoma had been conducting a baptism ritual when the two were swept out to sea.
The search is on going for the three missing people.
