Busy period for NSRI crew

National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) volunteers from Station 4 Mykonos had a busy weekend with various incidents in Kraal Bay and Langebaan on Saturday 14 December and Sunday 15 December.

According to Mike Shaw, NSRI Mykonos station commander, at 11:42 on Saturday the NSRI Mykonos duty crew was activated and launched the sea rescue craft Spirit of Surfski 5 to respond to Kraal Bay. It followed reports of a male teenager from Durbanville who got injured diving into shallow water from a height.

“Atlantic Medical Services and WC Government Health EMS were activated to respond to the Mykonos Marina. On the scene we found the 17-year-old seriously injured. Medical treatment commenced and the patient, secured on a stretcher, was loaded onto the sea rescue craft and brought to Mykonos Marina where paramedics continued with medical care and EMS Metro Control coordinated the Netcare 911 HEMS (Helicopter Emergency Medical Services) to respond.”

The Netcare 911 aeromedical helicopter took the patient to hospital in a serious but stable condition.

The NSRI crew were also kept busy the following day by assisting a kite surfer at Langebaan main beach after he was swept away in strong currents in an outgoing tide.

“Upon arrival on the scene about 200 metres off-shore the man in his 40s indicated to us that he was okay and we continued to monitor him making slow progress paddling on the board towards shore. We monitored his progress and he reached a submerged sand bank, The Groyn, and he waded ashore on the sandbank safely and no assistance was required.”
