Two children rescued from drowning at West Beach

NSRI have been informed that a Pink Rescue Floatation buoy has been used by a bystander to rescue 2 children from drowning at West Beach, Port Alfred.

Details are scarce but eye-witnesses have confirmed that an adult man grabbed the buoy off the pole at West Beach and used the buoy to successfully rescue 2 children.

NSRI Port Alfred was activated but eye-witnesses then confirmed that no further assistance was required and no one was injured in a non-fatal drowning accident and the buoy was returned to its post.

NSRI are hoping more details come to light regarding this incident as this will be the second known successful rescue since the launch of this drowning prevention campaign.
