Fishermen, boat rescued

Five fishermen were brought to safety through the help of the NSRI Lambert’s Bay duty crew. They were activated following reports of the fishermen’s boat taking in water after reportedly striking a whale while underway, 6,5 nautical miles north west of Lambert’s Bay at 11:00 on Tuesday 28 May.

According to Avril Mocke, Lambert’s Bay NSRI station commander, the five fishermen on board the open fishing boat had transferred onto fellow fishing boats that were in the vicinity, fishing together at the time and were confirmed to be safe. The sea rescue craft Douglas Murray was launched and reached the fishing boats at the location. The casualty fishing boat had sustained a crack in the hull. The crew transferred the fishermen onto their sea rescue craft and took their casualty fishing boat under tow to Lambert’s Bay where their boat was recovered.

The five fishermen were not injured and the whale involved is believed to have continued on its way.

The NSRI crew commends the fishermen who assisted on the scene.
