Stephen Slade, NSRI Port Alfred deputy station commander, said:
“At 07h30, Thursday, 04 April, NSRI Port Alfred duty crew were activated following reports of a small boat capsized in the Kowie River Mouth while exiting to go to sea with two crew onboard.
The sea rescue craft Lotto Rescuer and Rescue 11 Alpha was launched and our sea rescue vehicle responded to East Beach.
On arrival on the scene a Durban father (age 44) and his son (age 12) were found safe ashore on East Beach and not injured and their 4.6 meter boat was washing ashore.
NSRI assisted to recover their boat and no further assistance was required.”
