Busy holiday for local NSRI

A jet-skier lost for hours and an injured surfer and fishermen were all helped this holiday by members of the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI).

  • Last Wednesday 12 April the NSRI crew, stationed in Mykonos, assisted a fisherman who had suffered a laceration on his hand while on the long line fishing trawler Amori.

The 23-year-old from Gansbaai was brought to shore by the NSRI crew where he made arrangements to see a doctor.

  • On Friday the Mykonos crew helped to search for a missing jet-skier in Dwarskersbos after the 41-year-old from Brackenfell hadn’t made his way back to shore around 13:00.

The jet-skier had reportedly been swept out to deep sea by strong winds after suffering mechanical engine failure.

The man was later found by rescue parties patrolling the shore. This after the NSRI, the police and later even EMS Skymed’s rescue helicopter searched the shore and sea.

Apparently the jet-skier managed to repair his engine while adrift, and could make his way back to shore. He had no safety equipment or communication devices with him, as he had only intended to motor around briefly close in-shore to test his engine.

He was treated for mild hypothermia.

  • On Saturday 15 April the NSRI crew in Lamberts Bay assisted a 28-year-old surfer who had sustained head injuries while surfing at Yo-Yo’s Reef. The woman, who lives in Noordhoek, apparently hit her head when washed onto rocks while surfing.

According to Christo Filander, NSRI Lamberts Bay station commander, she was treated on the scene but with no ambulances immediately available, was transported to hospital by the NSRI for further treatment, as she was in a stable and satisfactory condition.
