Man drowns in Knysna Lagoon

Shortly before 3pm on Wednesday 17 January 2018, members of the NSRI Knysna duty crew were activated following reports of a drowning in progress near The Point in the Knysna Lagoon.

It is alleged that the victim misjudged the depth of the water. He jumped in and unable to swim disappeared under the water.

Members of the police notified NSRI volunteers who responded to the scene. On arrival at the scene NSRI rescue swimmers did a free dive search for a 24 year local man.

During the free dive search, NSRI rescue swimmers located the body of the man and a Police diver was deployed to assist NSRI in the recovery of the body.

Police have opened an inquest docket.

Family members of the victim are being assisted by trauma counsellors.

Condolences are conveyed to family and friends.
