On Thursday, 28 February, at 10h15, NSRI Shelly Beach duty crew responded aboard the sea rescue craft Spirit of Dawn to off-shore of St Michaels where a jet-ski with a 51-year-old
local man onboard required assistance. This follows after his jet-ski motor failed to start while he was fishing and began to took on water.
Crew on a local private boat Sea Witch assisted the man and took his jet-ski under tow and on our arrival on the scene near to Uvongo we took over the tow of the casualty jet-ski and the casualty man was transferred onto our sea rescue craft and we towed him safely to shore without incident.
NSRI commended the crew of Sea Witch for their assistance.
Deon Langenhoven, NSRI Hermanus station commander, said:
On Tuesday, 26th February, NSRI Hermanus duty crew launched the sea rescue craft South Star and rendezvoused with a fishing trawler 15 nautical miles off-shore South West of Danger Point to assist a fisherman who had suffered 4 crushed fingers from machinery onboard the fishing trawler.
On arrival on the scene the local fisherman was found walking around, wounded but in a stable condition. He was transferred onto our sea rescue craft and brought to shore without incident. The company representatives of the fishing company took the man to hospital for further care.
