Five people saved from drowning

On Christmas Day 2018, five people were saved from drowning at Wilderness.

NSRI Station 23 Wilderness were alerted by life guards on Wilderness Beach who requested assistance with 4 casualties caught in a rip current.

NSRI crew, who had based themselves at the station over this busy time to be able to respond quickly, immediately launched the rescue craft 'Oscars Rescue'.

On arrival on the scene NSRI found that the lifeguards had rescued all the casualties from the surf and no further assistance was required.

In a separate incident, Station 23 Wilderness were alerted to a non-fatal drowning victim at Wilderness lagoon who had been rescued from the water by life guards.

NSRI crew responded with Rescue 23 mobile and on arrival found 5 year Luniko Matolengwe, from George, who appeared to be losing consciousness.

NSRI Medics, assisted by the lifeguards, provided medical assistance and administered medical oxygen and Western Cape Government Health EMS Control activated ER24 ambulance services who responded to the scene.

The boy was transferred to hospital by ER24 ambulance in a stable condition, displaying non-fatal drowning symptoms. He is expected to fully recover.
